    Makes: 18


    • 900g plain white flour
    • large pinch of salt
    • 3 tsp baking powder
    • 170g butter, cubed
    • 55g caster sugar
    • 1 orange, zest grated
    • 3 eggs
    • 400ml milk
    • Glaze
    • Eggwash (1 egg whisked with a pinch of salt)
    • Granulated sugar
    • Orange Butter
    • 170g butter, softened
    • 2 large oranges, zest finely grated
    • 200g icing sugar


    1. Preheat the oven 250C, gas mark 9.
    2. First make the orange butter. Cream the butter with the orange zest. Sift in the icing sugar and beat until fluffy.
    3. Sieve the flour, salt and baking powder into a large, wide bowl. Add the butter and rub in lightly, using your thumb and fingertips, until the mix resembles coarse crumbs. Add the sugar and orange zest. Make a well in the centre. Whisk the eggs with the milk, add to the dry ingredients and mix to a soft dough. Turn out the dough onto a floured surface. Lightly shape into a rectangle and roll out to about 2cm thick.
    4. Spread the soft orange butter over the surface. Roll up lengthwise and cut into slices about 3cm thick. Put cut side up on a baking sheet. Brush the tops with eggwash and dip in granulated sugar. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown on top. Serve when still slightly warm.
