Hot Cross Buns Hot Cross Buns One A Penny Two A Penny Hot Cross Buns
300g Doves Farm Organic Strong White Bread Flour
1 tsp Doves Farm Quick Yeast
1 tbsp caster sugar
¾ tsp salt
1 tsp mixed spice
25g butter, melted
50g mixed peel, chopped
50g Doves Farm Organic Plain White Flour
3 tbsp water
3 tbsp apricot jam
How To Make:
1.) Firstly, put the flour, yeast, sugar, salt and mixed spice into a bowl and mix together.
2.) Melt the butter then add the milk and egg and beat together. Stir this into the flour and mix into a sticky dough.
3.) Knead the dough in the bowl for 100 presses, if possible without adding flour. The dough will be sticky at first then become smooth and pliable.
4.) Cover with oiled cling film and leave in a warm place to double in size (about 2 hours).
5.) Line a large baking tray with parchment.
6.) Add the currants and mixed peel to the dough and knead until they are well combined.
7.) Divide the dough into 10 pieces, roll each into a ball and place it on a parchment lined oven tray.
1.) Put the plain flour into a bowl and add just enough water to make a very thick paste.
2.) Using a paintbrush, dip it into the paste and paint a cross on each bun.
3.) Leave the buns to rise in a warm place for 20 minutes.
4.) Re-paint the paste cross and leave the buns to rise for a further 15 minutes.
5.) Pre-heat the oven.
6.) Bake for 18-20 minutes.
7.) Last but not least, gently heat the apricot jam, mashing any lumps, and brush it over the buns as they come out of the oven.
