1. Prepare the dough:

Combine Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
Cutting the butter: Add cold, melted butter to the dry ingredients. Using a rolling pin or your fingers, cut the butter into the mixture until it forms small balls and the remaining pieces are the size of peas. Add
Ultramel Custard: Pour in the Ultramel water and mix gently with a whisk until the dough comes together. Skip this step if you add raisins or dried apricots.
2. Making the buns:


Preheat the oven to 200°C. Place the baking tray on the baking tray.
To prepare the dough: Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead gently a few times. Roll the dough into a 1-inch round disk. Cut the dough into strips using a rolling pin or rolling pin, or use a circle around the round bun.
Prepare a baking tray: Place the buns on the prepared tray, leaving space between them.
3. Cooking:

Washing the eggs: Beat the egg with a spoon of water. Brush the tops of the buns with egg white to give them a golden color while baking.
Baking: Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the buns are golden brown and well-risen.
4. Prepare the cream:

While the buns are baking, mix the icing sugar with Ultramel and milk or cream until smooth. The glass should be large but pourable.
Cooking the scones: Let the scones cool on the wire rack for a few minutes before turning them off.
5. Glazing and making:

Divide the scones: Pour or spread the glaze over the scones. Let the glaze sit for a few minutes.
Preparation: Enjoy warm or room temperature scones, preferably with a cup of tea or coffee.
Tips for perfect scones:

Polishing aids: Use cold butter and broth to ensure the scones are springy and rise well.
Use less: Make as little dough as possible to keep the scones fresh. Overtraining can result in tough buns.
Variation: Feel free to try additions like chocolate chips or hazelnuts for different flavors.
The perfect way to add flavor to your day. Enjoy light, fluffy donuts with the delicious taste of Ultramel’s donuts. Have fun cooking!
