  • - 1 egg plus on egg yolk
  • - 120 ml milk
  • - 35g sugar
  • - a pinch of salt

    1. Put the flour into a large bowl then add the eggs, butter (heated to room temperature), sugar and the pinch of salt. Dissolve the yeast in warm milk and let it ferment for a couple of minutes then add it to the rest of the ingredients and mix well until you get a soft dough. After add one tbsp of oil and knead the mixture until it no longer stick to your hands, in a greased bowl leave it to rise in a warm place for an hour.

    3. Divide the dough into 12 equal balls and put them into a greased muffin tray. Leave it to rise in the tray for 30 minutes in a warm place.
    4. When they risen above the tray, brush with the egg yolk and a tbsp of milk mixture then place in the preheated oven at 170C/325F/gas mark 3 for 15 minutes then turn it down to 150C/300F/gas mark 2 and leave it for another 10 minutes.
