Premium White Bread Mix 500g
  • Premium White Bread Mix 500g
  • Wright's Premium White Bread Mix 500g
  • Egg 1 medium

Using the ingredients above (except sultanas) make up a well developed dough.
Stand for 5 minutes and then blend in 100g sultanas.
Divide dough into 20 pieces and mould into balls – stand for 5 minutes.
Roll out each ball to a thin 30cm strand, (12 inch) form into a heart shape and overlay a second heart offset on the first to produce 10 “Lovers Hearts”.
Cover with a damp tea towel; lightly oiled plastic or polythene and prove in a warm place for 30 minutes or until doubled in size.
Remove the cover before baking

Bake in a preheated oven at 220°C, (425°F, Gas Mark 7) for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.

Brush immediately from oven with a sugar syrup made from 1 tablespoon of sugar dissolved in 2 tablespoons of hot water.

Allow to cool on a wire tray.
Make up a water icing using 8oz icing sugar and 1oz boiling water. Using half the mixture drizzle white icing over the buns, colour remaining icing pink and drizzle again.
If desired, place ½ glace cherry on each side of the Lovers Heart.

Deb's Tips

Always allow your baked dough to cool before drizzling your icing over the top - otherwise it can slide off and not be as attractive as it would if thoroughly cooled.
