Hot Cross Bun Recipe

Looking for something for Lent or just a sweet bread to pass the day? Hot cross bun will cover both and keep the house safe!

As I recently have some time, I was searching on the web the other day. On the lookout for new, intriguing thoughts, inspiring dishes that I’ve never tested before, to treat my loved ones with. Hunting for quite some time yet couldn’t discover lots of interesting things. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I discovered this tempting and easy dessert simply by luck at Suncakemom. The dessert looked so yummy on its photos, that required quick actions.

It absolutely was easy to imagine the way it’s made, how it tastes and how much my hubby will love it. Mind you, it is very easy to delight the guy when it comes to cakes. Yes, I’m a lucky one. Or perhaps he is.Anyways, I went to the page and then followed the comprehensive instuctions that had been accompanied by great photographs of the operation. It just makes life much simpler. I can suppose it is a bit of a effort to shoot snap shots down the middle of cooking in the kitchen because you typically have gross hands so that i highly appreciate the commitment she placed in to make this post and recipe easily implemented.

With that said I’m empowered to present my own formulas in a similar way. Many thanks for the thought.

I had been fine tuning the original recipe create it for the taste of my loved ones. I have to tell you that it was an awesome success. They prized the taste, the consistency and loved getting a treat like this during a busy workweek. They ultimately demanded even more, a lot more. So the next occasion I’m not going to make the same miscalculation. I’m likely to multiply the amount to keep them delighted.

Original hot cross bun recipe invented by Suncakemom.

Warm milk up and put the yeast in to dissolve.

Put flour, butter, egg and agave syrup in a big mixing bowl.

Pour in the yeasty milk as well.

Knead ingredients until dough comes together and it separates from the bowl. Mixer and dough hook can be used for this step.

Put the dough in a lightly oiled bowl. Cover and leave it to rise in a warm place for 45 minutes or until doubled in size.

Peel and chop apple.

Take dough out of the bowl on a lightly floured surface and flatten it a bit by hands, spread raisins, orange peel, orange zest, chopped apple and cinnamon on top evenly.

Fold filling in the dough and put it back in the bowl and cover it.

Leave to rise for another 45 minutes or until doubled in size.

Divide the dough into 16 equal pieces.

Roll them into smooth balls.

Put balls into the baking tray leaving them some space to expand. Don’t put them too far away from each other though.

Cover it and leave for another 20 minutes to rise.

Preheat the oven to 430°F / 220°C.

Put a deep tray with water at the bottom of the oven so buns will bake in steamy hot air.

After 20 minutes give buns an egg wash.

Mix the flour with the water to make the paste for the cross.

Put the paste into a piping bag to decorate the buns with the cross.

Brush over the top of buns before putting the tray in the preheated oven.

Bake it for 20 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
