Method:

  1. Add the flour to a large mixing bowl, followed by the yeast. Mix until combined, then add the salt. Mix again.
  2. Add the eggs, butter, honey and warm milk. Mix until it forms a shaggy dough and then tip out onto a flat surface.
  3. Knead for 10 minutes until you have a smooth and stretchy dough. Place into a large greased bowl, cover and leave in a warm place for 1-2 hours.
  4. Punch down the dough, tip it out the bowl and roll into a thin large rectangle.
  5. Mix the filling ingredients and evenly coat the dough, right to the edges.
  6. Carefully roll up the dough until you have a long log shape. Cut the log into 12 even pieces.
  7. Place into a greased oven proof tray on one single layer, swirl side up. Cover and leave for 30 minutes.
  8. Brush with milk and bake in a pre-heated oven for 25 minutes at 180 degrees celcius.
  9. For the topping melt your dark chocolate in the microwave, leave to cool for a minute and then gradually whisk in the Greek yogurt. Place in the fridge until your buns have cooled, then spread an even layer over the top. Enjoy!
