    1. In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in the milk and add the sugar. Set aside for 5 minutes, or until foamy.
    2. In a large bowl, sift the flour and salt together and add the butter. Add the yeast mixture to the flour mixture, and turn out on to a floured surface. Knead until the dough is smooth and elastic, then return dough to a clean, greased bowl. Cover with a clean towel and let rise in a warm, draught-free place for 45 minutes.
    3. Preheat oven to 220 degrees C.
    4. Turn dough out on to the freshly floured surface and shape into 9 balls. Place balls into a greased and floured 23cm square cake tin, cover with the clean towel and set them aside for another 15 minutes to rise again.
    5. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until browned and puffed. Split open and serve warm.
