  1. Step 1:

    Gently heat the milk and butter with 120ml water in a small saucepan until warm to the touch.

  2. Step 2:

    In a large bowl combine the flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Add the egg and then gradually add the milk mixture, mixing until a soft dough is formed.

  3. Step 3:

    Tip the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic (usually after 10 minutes).  Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a rough rectangle shape, approximately 12 x 6cm. Roll up each bun starting with the long side.

  4. Step 4:

    Place onto a greased baking tray and cover with greased cling film allowing for growing space.

  5. Step 5:

    Leave to rise in a warm place for an hour or until doubled in height.

  6. Step 6:

    Brush with a beaten egg, make 3 small incisions along the top of each bun and bake at 220°C (200°C fan, gas mark 7) for 15 minutes until golden.
