13g (1½ tbsp.) dried fast active yeast
245ml warm milk
2 free-range eggs
113g butter soft
½ tsp salt
540g all purpose flour
2 tbsp. sugar
250g frozen raspberries.
50gr caster sugar
1 tsp corn flour
75g icing sugar
30gr soft butter
1 or 2 tbsp lemon juice
- Line the bottom of a 9 inch by 13 inch baking pan with parchment paper, allowing the paper to extend up the short sides. Butter the paper and sides of the pan.
- In a large jug or bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk.
- Next add in the eggs and butter.
- Put the sugar, salt, and flour in the bowl of an electric mixer.
- Add the milk and beat on medium speed with a dough hook until smooth dough ball forms, 8 to 10 minutes.
- Turn onto a floured surface; knead a little the dough should be smooth and elastic.
- Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top.
- Cover with cling film and let it rise in a warm place until it has doubled in size, about 1 hour.
- Punch down dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface, using a rolling pin, then roll it into a 10 inch by 24 inch rectangle.
- In a medium bowl, toss the frozen raspberries with the sugar and cornstarch.
- Spread the raspberry filling evenly over the dough. Tightly roll up the dough to form a 24-inch-long log.
- Working quickly, cut the log into quarters, then cut each quarter into 4 slices and arrange them in the baking pan, cut sides up.
- Cover the rolls and let them rise in a warm place until they are puffy and have filled the baking pan, about 2 hours.
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
- Bake the rolls for about 25 minutes, until they are golden and the berries are bubbling.
- When nearly ready, boil 4 tbsp. of sugar with 2 tbsp. of water to thick syrup. Immediately the buns are cooked brush them with the thick syrup, pop back in the oven for 1 minute then remove from the oven.
- Invert the rolls onto the rack and peel off the parchment paper.
- Invert the rolls onto a platter, shiny side up.
- Dollop glaze over each roll and spread with an offset spatula, or the back of a spoon. Serve warm or later at room temperature.
