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 surfing on the web the other day. In search of fresh, interesting ideas, inspiring recipes that I’ve never tasted before, to impress my family with. Searching for a while unfortunately could not find lots of interesting stuff. Just before I thought to give up on it, I discovered this delightful and easy dessert simply by chance. It looked so mouth-watering on its snapshot, that required rapid action.

It was simple enough to imagine the way it’s made, how it tastes and how much my hubby will probably enjoy it. Actually, it is rather easy to please the guy in terms of desserts. Anyways, I visited the site: Suncakemom and then followed the comprehensive instuctions that were coupled with wonderful images of the task. It really makes life rather easy. I could suppose it’s a bit of a inconvenience to shoot snap shots down the middle of cooking in the kitchen because you will often have sticky hands therefore i seriously appreciate the time and energy she put in for making this post .

With that in mind I am encouraged to present my own recipe similarly. Many thanks the thought.

I had been fine tuning the original mixture create it for the taste of my loved ones. I have to mention that it was an incredible success. They enjoyed the flavour, the structure and loved getting a delicacy like this in the middle of a lively workweek. They basically asked for more, a lot more. Thus the next time I’m not going to commit the same mistake. I am gonna multiply the quantity .

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.
