    • Baking


  • 125g Isabel’s dough balls
  • (plus 20g extra)
  • 50g ground almond
  • 50g butter
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 7g Isabel’s baking powder
  • 1 large size free range eggs
  • 30ml water
  • For the filling
  • Marzipan


  1. Pre-heat the oven at 180ᴼC. and grease a baking sheet.
  2. Place all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well. Add the butter and rub in using your fingers until it resembles a crumble mix. Then make a well in the middle, add the egg and the water.
  3. Beat all the ingredients together with a wooden spoon until it forms a soft, but firm enough to handle dough. Add a bit of the extra flour mix if the dough is too soft to handle.
  4. Grease your hands with vegetable oil and with the help of spoon scoop small amounts of the dough enough to make a bun of approx. 60mm diameter. Place the dough in your hand and gently roll the dough into bun shape. Flatten the middle of the bun and place a piece of the marzipan inside of the dough, folding the sides of the dough inwards to close and reform its round shape.
  5. Then place each bun onto the prepared baking sheet, making a cross on top of each roll with a wet knife to help prevent it from sticking on the dough. You may need to wash your hand after rolling a few of the buns as it might start to become sticky with dough.
  6. Bake in the pre-heated oven for about 25 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool the bread rolls on a cooling rack and keep on an air tight container (Not that they will last that long!).
