Ingredients

Makes 16 balls

  • 1 kg cake flour
  • 10 ml salt
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 sachet instant dry yeast
  • 2 tsp aniseed
  • 100 g butter
  • 250 ml white grape juice
  • 125 ml lukewarm milk
  • 250 ml lukewarm water
  • 30 ml sugar mixed with 30 ml lukewarm water (sugar syrup for brushing after baking)

Method

  1. Sift flour and salt together. Add sugar, yeast and aniseed. Stir well.
  2. Heat butter and grape juice in a saucepan until the butter has melted. Do not boil. Add to dry ingredients along with milk and water, then mix to form a soft dough.
  3. Turn out dough on a lightly floured surface, then knead for 5-10 minutes, or until the dough is soft and elastic. Place in a large oiled bowl, then cover and leave to rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes, or doubled in size.
  4. Knock down dough on a floured surface, and knead until smooth. Divide into equal pieced and shape into balls (the correct technique is to squeeze balls of dough through a circle made by your thumb and forefinger, using oiled/buttered hands, this way you get nice smooth balls of dough). Pack the balls tightly into 2 loaf tins of about 22cm each. Cover and leave to rise for about 30-45 minutes.
  5. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 C for 35-40 minutes. Turn out onto wire racks, then brush immediately with syrup.
