  • Punch down the dough, and knead it lightly. Break into 8 balls, roll each one and arrange them, touching, in the tin.
  • Brush the tops with milk and sprinkle over the sesame seeds.
  • Allow to rise again, then bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly in the tin, then turn out to a wire rack.
