Sweet Raisin Bun


Plain flour                       -  1kg

Whole milk                      -  1 cup

Unsalted butter               -  1/2 cup

Sugar                              -  1/4 cup

large eggs                       -  2

Salt                                 -  1 tsp

Yeast                              -  3 tsp

Water                             -   1-2 tbsp  [if needed]

Sultanas                          -   10 tsp    


Warm the milk [lukewarm]

Mix all of the ingredients together (except the water). If the dough seems dry add 1 tablespoon of water. Add the second tablespoon if really needed.

Once all of the ingredients are fully mixed place the dough on a lightly floured surface.

Knead until the dough for approximately 10 minutes. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a damp towel. Place the bowl in a warm area.

Allow the dough to rise until it has almost doubled in size (about 1 hour).Grease your  pan.

Split dough in half and then split those halves in half again so you have 4 even sections.

Divide each section in half again and then divide into 3 even balls. You should then have 24 balls of dough.

Shape dough balls in your hand by rolling. Continue until all rolls are smooth and ball shaped.

Place the rolls in your buttered pan. 

Cover the rolls with a damp towel and let rise in a warm area for 15 to 20 minutes. You can let them rise for up to an hour if needed. The rolls should have doubled in size.

Remove the damp towel and give egg wash and bake at 375 degrees  for 14 to 17 minutes or until the rolls are light golden brown.  The color will be very light and  make sure you don’t over cook.

Remove from oven and brush each of the bun’s top with melted butter immediately to keep the buns soft, even after cooling down.
