Viennese Whirls Recipe : Make Your Own Viennese Whirls

Viennese Whirls have been one of my favourite treats for as long as I can remember. People don’t understand why I love them so much. Especially when they’ve been in the fridge for a while and the jam has gone all chewy, mmmm. I’m sure I get it from my Dad as they’re one of his favourite treats too. When I spotted this Viennese Whirls Recipe in my Great British Bake Off Calendar I wanted to make them right away.  They’re one of those things that you don’t think are possible to make yourself, so understandably I was over the moon with how they turned out.

viennese whirls recipe

Ingredients:

Makes 18-20 (I halved the ingredients to make 8-10)

250g unsalted butter

100g icing sugar

1tsp vanilla extract

250g plain flour

30g cornflour

1/2tsp baking powder

Pinch of salt

1tbsp milk

For the Buttercream

75g unsalted butter

1tsp vanilla extract

175g icing sugar

3tbsp raspberry jam

Method:

Preparation/chilling: 30 minutes | Baking: 10-12 minutes

1. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.

2. Use a free standing mixer or hand whisk to beat the butter for 2-3 minutes until pale and creamy. Add the icing sugar and beat for a further 2-3 minutes.

3. Sift the flour, cornflour, baking powder and salt into the bowl and mix until thoroughly combined. Add the milk and mix 30 seconds.

4. Spoon the dough into a piping bag fitted with a large star nozzle and pipe 18-20 spirals, around 5cm in diameter on the prepared baking trays. Make sure you leave a little space between each one to allow for spreading. Chill the biscuits for 20 minutes whilst the oven is preheating to 170c (150c fan).

5. Bake for 10-12 minutes until pale golden at the edges. Allow to cool whilst you make the buttercream filling.

6. To make the buttercream, beat the butter for 2-3 minutes until pale and soft, add the vanilla and mix again. Gradually add the icing sugar until the buttercream is pale, light and soft.

7. Spoon the buttercream into a piping bag and spiral on to the inside of half the biscuits. Spread the other half of the biscuits with jam and sandwich the two together.

Enjoy…

    I didn’t know what these were – by the title – but looking at the picture, I think I have had these, but just didn’t know what they were called. Now I’d like to make them and wonder if they would come out OK with gluten-free flour.

    • Ami
      17th January 2018 / 11:53 am

      I’m not sure on that, you’ll have to let me know how they turn out. That would be interesting to know.
