Mix flour and sugar with a little lukewarm milk. Add crumbled yeast and gently stir. Allow it to raise covered at warm place.
Put flour into a bowl, add a pinch of salt, melted butter and egg yolk. Add yeast and mix the dough.
Let it rise, covered, in a warm place.
Put the dough on floured board and divide it into 4 parts.
Roll each part of the dough into a roller with a diameter of max. 2 cm. Cut each roller into 1.5-2 cm pieces.
You can bake the pieces directly as you cut them. But it is better to shape each piece into a ball, in lightly oiled palms.
Place the balls on a baking sheet lined with baking paper, at proportionate distance from each other.
Bake for 18 minutes at 180 °C.
Let cool. The bobáľky are soft, but may later harden. If you want to store them for a few days, put them in a plastic bag and wrap them in a dish towel.
