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 most recently have some time, I had been browsing on the internet yesterday. Looking for fresh, interesting thoughts, inspiring dishes that I’ve never tested before, to surprise my loved ones with. Looking for quite some time yet couldn’t find lots of interesting stuff. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I came across this delightful and easy treat by accident on Suncakemom. The dessert looked so scrumptious on its image, that called for quick action.

It was simple enough to imagine how it is created, its taste and how much my husband will enjoy it. Mind you, it is very easy to delight the guy in terms of puddings. Anyways, I visited the site and simply followed the detailed instuctions that were coupled with impressive pictures of the task. It really makes life quite easy. I can suppose it is a slight effort to shoot photos down the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you may will often have sticky hands so I really appreciate the commitment she put in for making this blogpost .

That being said I’m encouraged presenting my own, personal formulas in the same way. Many thanks the idea.

I had been tweaking the original recipe to make it for the taste of my family. I must mention it absolutely was an awesome success. They prized the flavor, the overall look and loved having a treat like this during a hectic week. They quite simply demanded lots more, many more. Hence the next occasion I am not going to commit the same miscalculation. I am gonna double the volume to keep them pleased.

hot cross Bun recipe recipe originally from 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.
