Equipment

  • Bread Machine

Ingredients
  

  • ¾ cup skimmed milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 tsp active dry yeast
  • ¼ cup softened butter cut into pieces
  • tsp ground cinnamon
  • Up to 1 cup currants (or finely chopped dried peaches)
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 tsp water

For The Icing

  • cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp skimmed milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

Instructions
 

  • In a large bowl whisk together the 3/4 cup milk, 2 teaspoons of vanilla, and the egg.
  • Pour the milk mixture to the bread machine. Add flour, sugar, salt, yeast, and butter. Then add the order suggested by your bread machine manufacturer.
  • Set the machine on the dough cycle. Add cinnamon and currants or chopped dried fruit at the beep. If the mixture seems too dry, add couple tablespoons of water.
  • When the dough is done and doubled in volume, remove to a lightly floured surface. Punch down, knead about 6 to 8 times, and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  • Grease a 9-inch square baking pan.
  • Tear off small pieces of dough (about 2 to 2 1/4 ounces each) and shape them into balls. Place the dough balls in the prepared baking pan. Cover the pan with a cloth and let the dough rise in a warm place for 40 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • In a small mixing bowl stir together the egg yolk and 2 tablespoons water. Lightly brush the tops of the buns with the egg yolk mixture. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the tops are nicely browned. Remove the pan to a rack to cool completely.
  • Combine the confectioners' sugar with 2 tablespoons of milk and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and stir until smooth. Add small amounts of hot water or more confectioners' sugar, as needed, for drizzling consistency. With a spoon or decorating bag, cover the tops of the buns.
