|1||Prepare 100 g raisins and put to soak in the rum.||10 min.|
|2||Roll out 700 g Brioche dough into a large square 1/2 cm (1/4 inch) thick.||2 min.|
|3||Trim off the side of the square nearest to you with a large knife to give a straight edge.||3 min.|
|4||Spread 700 g Confectioner's custard (Crème pâtissière, or French pastry cream) evenly all over the dough. Use a palette-knife, if you have one, as it will make this easier.||5 min.|
|5||Spread the raisins evenly on top.||3 min.|
|6||Then roll the dough up.
This is the trickiest part of the recipe. You can use a palette knife to help you, as shown in the photo, or slip a sheet of paper under the dough to help you lift it up.
|7||Roll up tightly and seal the roll by brushing only the trailing edge with beaten egg to help it stick.||3 min.|
|8||Place the roll with the seam underneath on a baking sheet and put in the freezer for 30 minutes.
This is to firm up the dough and make it easier to cut.
|9||After this "firming" time, cut the dough into slices 1 to 1.5 cm (1/4 to 1/2 inch) thick.||8 min.|
|10||Arrange on the baking sheet with room between them, as they need room to expand.||3 min.|
|11||Glaze the tops...||5 min.|
|12||...and sides of the buns.
Cover with a plastic sheet and leave to rest for 2 hours.
|13||After this, heat the oven to 240°C (460°F).
Glaze the buns again and bake for about 20 minutes.
