  Dough: Mix yeast and milk; allow to work for 10-15 mins.  Sift flour
  and salt into a bowl; rub in butter.  Mix in yeast mixture; knead
  until smooth on floured worktop. Prove in covered oiled bowl until
  double in bulk.
  Filling: Mix all ingredients together.
  Construction: Divide dough into two pieces, size ratio 2:1.  Flatten
  larger piece, and lay filling onto it.  Knead filling and dough
  together until thoroughly incorporated.  Roll out smaller dough piece
  into a circle. Place bun in centre of dough; wrap completely, drawing
  together edges in the centre of the top with a pinch. Line a cake tin
  (25-30cm, or 10-12") with greaseproof paper, and invert bun into tin
  (pinched side down).  Cover to prove dough for 30-40 mins.  Skewer
  right through bun several times before glazing with mixed egg yolk
  and milk.
  Cooking: 2 hours at 180C / 350F / Gas 4
  Eating: Cold, with whisky at New Year, Burns' Night (25 Jan), St
  Andrews Day (30 Nov) or any other vaguely Scottish excuse.
