- Flour a work surface, form the dough into a ball and leave to rise for 2 hours in a bowl. The dough should double in volume.
- When the dough has doubled in size, flour the work surface with the wheat flour and roll out the dough to 1-1.5cm thick.

While the eggs are cooking. Cut the muffins in half, butter the inside of each side, then brown them in a pan. Place the 4 bases on a sheet of baking paper (keep the muffin top aside). Add a generous slice of Racly cheese on top and bake for 3-4 minutes until the Racly cheese melts.
