Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sift the flour, salt, dried yeast and sugar into a bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour in the milk.
  2. Mix in and knead to form a smooth dough, then turn the dough onto a work surface and knead for about 10 minutes.
  3. Put the dough in a greased bowl, cover with clingfilm and leave it to rise in a warm place for 1-1 1/2 hours until doubled in size.
  4. Punch the dough down in the bowl to knock the air out, and then gradually work in the softened butter a little at a time.
  5. The dough will now be very sticky to work with, but just continue working on until the butter is blended in evenly.
  6. Turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface and shape the dough into a ball and cut the ball into 16 bits.
  7. Roll each ball out into a long sausage-shaped roll, and then tie each roll into a knot.
  8. Place each roll onto a greased baking tray and brush the top of the rolls with the beaten egg.
  9. Loosely cover the baking sheet with a clingfilm and leave it to rise again in a warm place for about half an hour.
  10. Meanwhile, pre-heat the oven to gas mark 5/375°F/190°C.
  11. Bake in the centre shelf of the oven for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  12. Remove from oven and transfer on to a wire rack to cool.
