Method Of Preparation
Sieve the flour, then add milk powder, sugar, yeast and salt. Then add the oil and butter and the egg, and mix together. Now add all the milk. Start kneading together and gradually add the water a little at a time. You might not need it all, so add it sparingly until your dough is nice and soft. Knead for 8-10 minutes. The more you knead it the softer the buns will be.
Touch a bit of oil with your fingertips and apply all over the ball of dough. Cover in a bowl and set aside for 40mins to an hour for it to double in size.
Punch it down, and break off tiny bits of dough. Add the raisins to it and just knead it again. Divide the dough into small balls. Grease your pan. Place the balls of dough into the greased tray. Leave enough spaces in between.
Cover the pans and set aside for a second rise, about half an hour.
Now apply egg wash on the balls, preheat your oven to 180 C and bake for about 30-35 minutes, or until the bread is nice and golden on top.
Remove from oven ad cool on a wire rack.
