A sweet dough is a novelty for me, but the sticky dough made photography rather difficult. So there are only pictures of the finished product:
This is a previously untried recipe from Joe Ortiz's "The Village Baker", a book I've had for many years, and learnt to rely on. There are still some recipes I've never tried, like this one.
My execution was not really very good but the camera is forgiving, and so were the family who scoffed the lot.
The principle is that you roll out a sweet dough, wash with an egg wash, spread with a currant, sugar and cinnamon mixture and then roll up like a Swiss roll. Slice into discs with a (very) sharp knife and flatten each disc with the palm of your hand before rising and then glazing with a vanilla flavoured sugar syrup. You are supposed to drizzle with a fondant icing, but this was a a step too far given my rudimentary buns.
The family verdict: "Can you make these again for Christmas, Dad?" A winner. I will... and presentationaly I will make a better job of them too.
