Dried fruit and almond buns

These sweet buns are bursting with dried fruit and almonds. Bake a batch for an easy, on-the-go breakfast.

Ingredients

Preparation method

  1. Place the flour into a mixing bowl and, using your fingertips, rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the, salt, sugar, ground almonds, and yeast and stir until well combined.

  2. Add the milk and mix together with a fork until the mixture comes together as a sticky dough.

  3. Tip the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for five minutes, or until the dough is smooth and elastic.

  4. Lightly oil a bowl with a little of the vegetable oil. Place the dough into the bowl and turn until it is covered in the oil. Cover the bowl with cling film and set aside in a warm place for one hour, or until the dough has doubled in size.

  5. Lightly grease two baking trays.

  6. Knock the dough back to its original size and turn out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead in half of the flaked almonds and all of the dried fruit.

  7. Sprinkle the remaining flaked almonds onto a plate.

  8. Divide the dough into 12 portions and shape them into rounds. Roll each round in the flaked almonds and place onto the baking trays, cut-side facing upwards, ensuring that the rolls are well spaced. Cover with a tea towel and set aside to prove for one hour.

  9. Preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7.

  10. Bake the almond buns for 15-20 minutes, or until risen and golden-brown. Remove the buns from the oven and set aside to cool on a wire rack.
