I hope you guys enjoy this easy recipe for delicious Iced Buns!
30minutes preparation; 15minutes cooking; makes 20
500g white bread mix
100g caster sugar
350g icing sugar
food colouring of your choice (optional)
1) Pulse together the bread mix and sugar in a food processor or table-top mixer. Meanwhile, add the egg and about 250-300ml lukewarm water until a soft dough is formed. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth, about 5-10minutes. Leave in an oiled bowl, cover with oiled cling film in a warm place until double in size – about 1 hour.
2) Knock back the dough by squashing with your fist, and divide into 20 even sized pieces – keep covered with a clean tea towel so they don’t dry out. Shape each into a sausage and place on an oiled baking tray. Cover with oiled cling film and rise until doubled in size again.
3) Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/Gas Mark 6. Remove the film and cook buns on top shelf for 10minutes until golden. Cool on a wire rack.
4) To decorate, mix the icing sugar with a little water until stiff but spreadable and add any food colouring if you wish. Dip in the top of each bun and scatter with sprinkles.
