Award Winning Hambleton Bakery launches the Plum Shuttle to celebrate Rutland's Independence

Hambleton Bakery, the multiple-award-winning regional bakery specialising in traditional handmade artisan bread, has launched a new ”Plum Shuttle”.  A traditional Rutland product, this is the first commercial production of the Plum Shuttle since 1890.  Hambleton Bakery owners Julian Carter and Tim Hart dreamt up the idea as way to contribute to the county’s 20thanniversary of Rutland’s independence celebrations.

How is it made
The Plum Shuttle is a yeast-leavened bun made in a hand-filling oval shape, said to mimic the shuttle that the hand-weavers of the Vale of Belvoir used. The dough is enriched with butter and currants flavoured with ginger and Caraway seeds. The buns are made like bread, kneaded, risen, knocked back and kneaded again, then glazed with beaten egg.  Ingredients: plain flour, currants, butter, salt, yeast, warm water, warm milk
1 egg, ginger, caraway seed.
