Please help, how do you make them look all pretty and glossy? My mum used to make them look beautiful but i cant for the life of me remember how.

Australian WW.
1 tablespoon sugar, 1 teaspoon sugar, 1 tablespoon hot water. Stir to dissolve.
Remove from oven and brush with glaze.
I hope this helps.

Sorry, amend those ingredients.

I tablespoon sugar, 1 teaspoon gelatine, 1 tablespoon hot water.

Thanks Lurtz, but i dont have any gelatine and im not walking back into town hahahaha... ...

Fair enough. Ihave used icing sugar, and water, or milk. Make it runny enough to brush on. It's not a clear and glossy glaze; more whitish and shiny, but very nice. You could flavour it with vanilla also. Hope this helps

For savoury rolls, I use egg yolk whipped with a fork and painted on with a pastry brush - or fingers! It bakes to a golden gloss... wonder if it would work with the sweet rolls? Can't see why not...

What a good idea elliehen:-)I use an egg glaze on savouries and bread, so why not on sweet things. I suppose that if a glaze is being used to sweeten baked things slightly, a little sugar or icing sugar could be added to the egg.

often warmed and sieved apricot jam is used as a glaze for tarts and the like. i never bother to seive it though.

This recipe for Raisin and Custrd Snail Buns uses egg wash for glazing. See in recipe ingredients.
