Mix the zopf flour, salt, sugar and yeast in a bowl.

Add the butter and milk, mix and knead for approx. 5 mins. to form a soft, smooth dough. Cover and leave to rise at room temperature for approx. 2 hrs. until doubled in size.

To shape

Cut the dough into 4 pieces, shape each piece into a roll, cut off approx. 1/4 for the head.

Cut into the lower third of the roll to make the legs. Cut into the upper third at the sides to make the arms. Shape the head into an oval ball and place on top of the body. Insert raisins for eyes.

Transfer the dough figures to a baking tray lined with baking paper, leave to rise for a further 30 mins.

Brush with egg, sprinkle sugar crystals over the stomach.

To bake

Approx. 25 mins. in the lower half of an oven preheated to 180°C. Remove from the oven, leave to cool on a cooling rack.
