These are so easy to make when you use a bread machine. If you don't have a bread machine, see directions. You can use any flavour of jam - raspberry, strawberry, blackcurrant or even lemon curd. Serve them plain, sugar-coated or iced.
Mix the yeast with 120ml warm milk and stand for about 5 minutes, until foamy. Add 150g flour and mix until combined - if you have a table top mixer, use the beater attachment, cover and leave to rise until doubled in volume. Add the remaining milk and flour along with the water, sugar, beaten egg, melted butter, salt and nutmeg. Beat until the dough comes together, about 2 minutes. Knead for a minute then put in an oiled bowl, cover and leave to rise again until doubled in size. Then follow remaining instructions above.
