Hot Cross Buns

Post  annie on Thu Apr 09, 2009 2:28 am


500g strong bread flour, plus extra for dusting
1 1/2 tsp Salt
75g caster sugar
7 g sachet dried Yeast,
300 ml mixed milk and water,
150g sultanas
zest of 2 Oranges
80g mixed peel
2 tsp ground Cinnamon
50ml water and 50g sugar for glaze


Put the flour, salt, sugar and yeast into a bowl. Slowly add enough of the milk and water mix to achieve pliable dough. Tip out onto a lightly floured surface and knead well for 5 minutes, then put the dough back into the bowl and leave to rise for 1 hour.

Incorporate the sultanas, mixed peel, orange zest and cinnamon into the dough and leave to rise for 1 hour.

Lightly grease a baking sheet. Divide the dough into 75g pieces and roll each into a ball. Put them on a baking tray and leave to rest for 1 hour.

Set the oven to 220°C/gas 8. Bake the buns for 25 minutes until golden brown.

Combine the sugar and water together to make a syrup and brush this liberally all over the buns. Serve immediately.
