PREPARE THE DOUGH

STEP 1

In a stand-mixer bowl, add all ingredients and mix on low speed till the dough comes together and pull away from the side of the bowl.

 

STEP 2

Lightly grease a large bowl and place the dough in the bowl.

Cover the bowl with cling wrap / warm towel, and allow the dough to rise for 60 minutes, or until double in size.

 

STEP 3

Take the risen dough and divide it into 12 equal pieces. Shape it into a ball and place it into a greased baking pan.  

Cover the shaped dough with cling wrap / warm towel, and allow it to rise for 40 - 60 minutes, or until double in size.

 

PREPARE THE PASTE

STEP 4

Mix the flour and water evenly. Pour the paste into a piping bag, and cut a small hole.

 

AFTER THE DOUGH HAS RISEN

STEP 5

Pipe a cross on each dough with the paste.

Bake at 180°C for 20 minutes.

PREPARE THE GLAZE

Dissolve the honey in warm water, and brush a layer of honey syrup over the baked bun to give a lovely shiny finish.
