Guildford Manchets

Breads
Surrey

(Or Guildford Rolls)

Flaked-paste bread rolls, glazed. Anecdotal evidence that they were breakfast items, 19th Century, always torn (never cut) and buttered as with traditional muffins, and once made with a slash or indent on the surface for easy ripping. The name is from an old word for fine quality bread, see Manchet.

1 lb Strong plain flour
1 Teaspoon Salt
4 oz Butter
Yeast
1 Teaspoon sugar
½ pint milk and water, warm
1 oz Lard
Salt

Make the bread dough in the usual way using 1 oz of the butter. After the first rise, knock back and knead until the dough is firm about 2 minutes. Roll out about 6 x 14 inches. Cream the remaining butter with the lard, add a little salt and form into a rectangle. Place this in the centre of the dough and fold over to enclose the fat. Seal the edges and roll into a strip. Proceed as for making puff pastry, folding and rolling 4 times in all. Finally, roll out into a rectangle, cut into 16 pieces, and form each into a round. Place on greased baking trays, cover and leave to rise in a warm place for about 20 minutes. Brush the rolls with milk or beaten egg and bake at 200 °C / 400 °F / Gas 6 for about 30 minutes. Eat these warm with butter, pulled apart, not cut.
