Prep Time:

Cook Time:

Servings:
Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 100ml milk
  • 30g butter
  • 350g strong white bread flour
  • 7g sachet fast action dried yeast
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp mixed spice
  • 75g mixed dried fruit (peel, sultanas, raisins and currants)
  • oil for greasing
  • 1 egg, beaten

Instructions

  • Step 1: Begin by combining the milk and butter in a pan and heating until the butter has fully melted. Then, add 100ml of water to reduce the temperature of the mixture to room temp. In a bowl, combine the flour, yeast, sugar, spices, and 1 tsp of salt. Make sure the yeast and salt are not mixed together, then form a well within the flour mixture. Pour the milk-butter combination into the well, stirring until the mixture creates larger flakes. Transfer the dough onto a surface and knead until it is smooth and pliable (for 5 minutes or so). Place the dough into a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a damp towel and let it rise until it doubles in size (approximately 1-1 ½ hours).
  • Step 2: Place parchment paper on a tray. Work the mixed dried fruits into the dough, evenly distributing them as much as possible. Divide the dough into 6 equal pieces. With your hand cup, roll each piece on the surface with a bit of pressure, forming it into a round bun. Put them on the tray at a distance of 5cm from each other, and flatten them a little, giving them the typical teacake shape. Cover them with a lightly oiled sheet of cling film, and let them rest for 45 minutes or until they double in size.
  • Step 3: Preheat your oven to 200C/180C fan/gas mark 6. Brush the egg wash generously over the top of each bun and bake on the top shelf for 20 mins until they turn a golden colour and have risen. Leave to cool on a wire rack, before halving, toasting and spreading with butter to your liking.
