Hurrah! Finally had time to make them today - and it did take all of 6 hours in total...but that was mainly because the dough needed 3 lots of rising/proving. I'm glad I left them until I had proper time to make them rather than trying to rush the rising and they actually seem softer and less dense than my dough usually is. The real test will be whether they're hard as rocks tomorrow...
Here they are ready for final proving
Out of the oven and glazed
And a pic of the inside. Yummy.
