Party Wheel

Makes: 1 Party Wheel
Oven: 200 °C / 400 °F
Preparation Time: 1 hour and 40 minutes
Baking Time: 25 - 30 minutes
Ingredients:
500 g Cake flour (4 x 250 ml / 4 cups)
10 ml Salt (2 tsp)
5 ml Sugar (1 tsp)
45 g Margarine (3 tbsp)
10 g Anchor Instant Yeast (1 packet)
300 ml Lukewarm water (approx. 1¼ cups)

Method:
  1. Mix all dry ingredients together, then rub the margarine into the flour with the fingertips. Add the Anchor Instant Yeast and mix.
  2. Add enough lukewarm water to form a soft dough and knead the dough well until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes.
  3. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface, cover with greased plastic and leave to rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Knock the dough down and divide into 13 equal pieces.
  5. Roll each piece into a round ball and place 3 balls onto a greased baking tray, next to each other, in the shape of a clover leaf. Place the 10 remaining balls around the clover leaf, to form a circle.
  6. Brush with water and sprinkle alternatively with flour and grated cheese.
  7. Cover with greased plastic and allow to rise in a warm place until double in volume, about 15 – 20 minutes.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven at 200 °C / 400 °F for 25 – 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
