DIRECTIONS

  • Put the dough ingredients into the mixer of your bread machine in the order suggested by the manufacturer and set for the dough cycle.
  • When the dough is ready, roll out on a lightly floured surface into a rough 20 cm by 30 cm rectangle.
  • Spread the dough evenly with the soft butter, then sprinkle with the apricots, almonds and sugar.
  • Roll up firmly like a Swiss roll from one of the long sides. Dampen the open edge to help it stick if you need to.
  • Cut into 8 even slices with a sharp knife, shape into round pinwheels, then arrange in a greased 21 cm or 23 cm cake tin, cut side up.
  • Cover with a clean, damp tea towel and let rise in a a warm place for about 20 minutes until roughly doubled in size.
  • Bake in a preheated 400 degree F oven for 10 minutes, then lower the temperature to 350 degrees F.
  • Bake for 10 more minutes until golden brown.
  • Melt the jam with 1 tablespoons water, brush over the tops of the buns, then sprinkle with a few more flaked almonds.
