I looked for a pretty easy recipe online and set about making them. The dough for the buns called for pretty much the normal ingredients you would expect. Flour, yeast, an egg, sugar and milk. I brought the ingredients together in a bowl, initially by hand and found the mixture to be quite loose.
I thought I’d pop it into the mixer to knead, as there was no way I could do it by hand. It would have been like a scene from the 1950’s ‘B’ move ‘The Blob’. So I popped on the mixer, dough hook attached and left it for 10 minutes, hoping the sloppy mix would get firmer as the glutens developed.
