Swiss Buns

ingredients

serves 8
2 tsp dried yeast
1 tsp sugar
125ml hand-hot milk
1 3/4 cup (200 g) strong white breadmaking flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
2 tbsp (1 oz) 25 g butter or margarine

method

1. Stir the dried yeast and sugar into the milk and leave until frothy ? about 15 minutes or blend the fresh yeast with the milk.

2. Sift together the flour and salt. Add the sugar and rub in the fat. Stir in the yeast liquid and mix to a soft dough.

3. Turn onto a well-floured surface and knead until smooth and no longer sticky. Place in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with cling film and leave to rise until doubled in size - about 1 hour.

4. Knock back the risen dough. Divide into eight and form each piece into a sausage shape 12cm in length. Place the shaped buns well apart on greased baking trays. Cover and leave to prove until buns are light and puffy - about 20 minutes.

5. Bake in a hot oven 220 degrees C, Gas Mark 7 until golden brown - about 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

6. To decorate:
When cool, ice buns with a fairly stiff white or pink glace icing made with 150g (6oz) icing sugar, water and colouring (if preferred).
