How To Make Gluten And Dairy Free Hot Cross Buns:

Makes: 12 buns

Prep Time: 20 mins, plus 1 hr proving
Cooking Time: 45 minutes

What You Need: 

1 x Delicious Alchemy Gluten & Dairy Free White Bread Mix

1 tsp nutmeg

1 tsp cinnamon

40g caster sugar

50g butter or dairy free spread

40g mixed peel

80g currants

120ml milk or dairy-free alternative

1 large egg

3 tbsp gluten-free flour

Golden syrup

What You Do:

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 150C/300FMix the white bread mix together with the nutmeg, cinnamon and caster sugar in a large bowl. Add the butter or dairy free spread and rub in with your fingertips. Fold through the currants and mixed peel.

Step 2

In a separate bowl, mix together 120ml milk or dairy-free alternative with 100ml of warm water. Beat in the egg, then add to the dry ingredients to form a wet dough.

Step 3

Divide the dough equally in a greased 12-hole muffin tin. Wet your hands with cold water before handling the dough to prevent it from sticking to your fingers too much.

Step 4

Cover the buns loosely with cling film, and allow them to prove in a warm place for 1 hour. Don’t worry if they don’t visibly rise too much during the prove – this part happens in the oven.

Step 5

Mix three tablespoons of gluten-free flour with an equal amount of water until it forms a smooth, thick paste. Place the paste in a piping bag and pipe the crosses over the buns. Make sure they are thick enough, or they may crack and shrink in the oven.

Step 6

Put the buns in a cold oven and turn the temperature up to 165C. This is important as it helps the buns to rise. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the buns are golden in colour. If you’re unsure, turn one of the buns and check underneath – it should be firm and not soft.

Step 7

Turn them on to a rack to cool and brush with golden syrup. These buns are delicious warm from the oven or toasted with a little spread. They’ll keep for a few days, but will also freeze well if you want to keep them for longer.
