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 lately have a little time, I was looking on the web last week. Looking to find fresh, intriguing tips, inspiring recipes that We have never tested before, to astonish my family with. Hunting for a long time yet could not find too many interesting stuff. Right before I thought to give up on it, I ran across this tempting and easy treat simply by accident at Suncakemom. It seemed so yummy on its pic, it required rapid action.

It was simple enough to imagine just how it is created, its taste and just how much my hubby might love it. Mind you, it is extremely easy to keep happy him when it comes to desserts. Anyway, I got into the page and then followed the simple instuctions that had been accompanied by nice images of the procedure. It really makes life rather easy. I could imagine that it is a bit of a inconvenience to shoot snap shots down the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you may will often have gross hands thus i pretty appreciate the time and energy she devote to build this blogpost and recipe conveniently followed.

With that in mind I’m encouraged to present my personal recipes in a similar fashion. Thanks for the idea.

I was tweaking the original mixture create it for the taste of my loved ones. I can tell you it was a great success. They prized the flavour, the overall look and enjoyed getting a sweet like this in the midst of a lively workweek. They ultimately demanded even more, many more. Thus the next occasion I am not going to commit the same miscalculation. I am gonna multiply the amount to keep them happy.

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.
