Grittibanz from the Book of Buns
My dough made with 250g flour, milk, 2 eggs and 100g butter, yeast, salt, and just a little sugar yielded five lovely little St Nicholas's. Through William's, a fellow member on the face book page of the Baking from the Book of Buns group, link I had a lot of help with the shaping.
They are usually made and eaten all over the German speaking part of Switzerland to celebrate the feast day of St Nicholas on 6 December..but Little Daniel was coming to visit today, and now is getting used to being served up with 'bun'...
I delivered two for the Children next door, and a couple are being held back in freezer land ready to take down for Izzi.
