1/4 pt Milk; warmed
1 oz Butter; melted
Clotted cream
1 ts Easy-blend yeast
1/2 lb Stong white bread flour
1 tb Sugar
Icing sugar
1/2 ts Salt
Good jam

Original recipe makes 8 Servings



Using a food-processor, a food mixer with a dough hook, or your hands, mix the dry ingredients, add the warm milk and melted butter and mix and knead to a smooth elastic dough. Cover with lightly oiled polythene and leave to rise until doubled in size - about 1 hour in a warm place. Knock back and knead again briefly. Divide the dough into eight and shape into small round buns. Space them well apart on a greased baking tray. Cover and set aside to prove (rise) until light and puffy - about 20 minutes. Bake at 425 F (220 C) gas mark 7 for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Cool, then cut each bun down the middle, from top to bottom but not all the way through. Split open and fill with cream and jam. Be generous, allowing plenty of jam and no less than 1 oz clotted cream per bun. Then dust with icing sugar. Makes 8 buns. Source: Philippa Davenport in "Country Living" (British), March 1989.
