Ok MM I'll write the recipe for you right now
For the buns:
1/2 cup milk
1 egg beaten
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour (stronger the better)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 block yeast (I use cubes of yeast for 1kg of flour so it amounts to 1/4 of a cube so hope this makes sense?)
For the filling:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins
First I cream the yeast in a bowl with a little bit of the sugar and place it into the warmed milk and leave for ten minutes.
Whilst waiting for the yeast In a bowl I added the flour, sugar, salt. I cream the butter a little and then add it to the flour mixture along with the milk and beaten egg and bring together firstly with a knife and once starting to bind I get my hands in there and bring it together into a nice ball and onto the work surface to knead for a good 8 minutes until stretchy and the dough has a nice sheen to it. I then place the dough into a bowl covered with a tea towel. I then placed a bowl of hot water into the bottom of the oven and the put the dough on the top shelf and left to rise for an hour minimum or until doubled in size. I then knocked it back down on the work surface and rolled it out into a rectangle(not too sure on size but not too thick and not too thin) I then melted the butter and brushed the surface of the dough just leaving the far edge furthest away from you free of butter. Then I mixed the sugar, raisins and cinnamon together in a bowl and sprinkled this all over the dough right up to the edges but still leaving the furthest edge clean. Then starting from the closest edge to you roll up tightly working away from you. Once tightly rolled cut into 12 equal slices and place on a greased baking tray and cover and put back in the warm oven to rise. Once they have risen again take them out of the oven and preheat the oven to 180c and place in the oven for approx 15-20 minutes or until the tops just start to go golden. I then dusted the top of them with caster sugar and ate warm with a cold glass of milk....yummmmm
I hope you enjoy them MM and let me know when you do.
