Scottish Baps


  • Combine 700 gm flour with the yeast and salt in a large bowl until well incorporated. Add the butter and rub together until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Make a well in the centre and pour in the tepid water and milk. Then knead with your hands to form a soft dough until smooth and elastic, adding a little more flour if needed. 
  • Lightly oil another large bowl, transfer the dough, cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm spot for 2-3 hours until doubled in size.
  • When ready, lightly flour the dough and knock down. Then divide it into about 12 and gently roll out to about the size of a saucer.
  • Place the baps onto lightly oiled baking sheets, loosely cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm spot to again double in size.
  • Preheat oven to 210°C fan forced (230°C normal).
  • Lightly brush the baps with milk and dredge with fresh flour. Then cook in the oven for 12-15 mins until golden brown.
