Mix the flour, salt and sugar in a bowl, crumble the yeast and mix in. Cut the butter into pieces, add together with the milky water, knead for approx. 10 mins. until you have a soft, smooth dough. Cover and leave to rise at room temperature for approx. 2 hrs. until doubled in size.


Core the apple and grate finely into a bowl, mix in the almonds, jelly, milk and lemon juice.

Bread men

Divide the dough into 8 portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll out one portion into a rectangle (approx. 15 x 20 cm), spread 1/6 of the filling on top.

Roll the dough up from one of the long edges, cut the roll in half lengthwise.

Twist both strands together 3 times with the cut sides facing up to create an X shape. Shape a further 5 portions of dough in the same way to create the bodies.

Place on two trays lined with baking paper. Shape the remainder of the dough into 6 balls, place the heads on top of the bodies. Insert raisins for eyes. Cover and leave to rise for a further 30 mins.

To bake

Approx. 25 mins. in an oven preheated to 180°C (convection). Remove from the oven, stir the jelly until smooth, glaze the bread men with the jelly while still warm, leave to cool on a rack.
