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 some time, I was looking on the web last week. In search of fresh, intriguing tips, inspirational recipes that I have never tasted before, to impress my loved ones with. Hunting for quite some time yet couldn’t come across any interesting stuff. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I ran across this tempting and easy treat by luck over Suncakemom. It looked so delicious on its pic, it required prompt actions.
It absolutely was not so difficult to imagine just how it is made, its taste and how much boyfriend will probably like it. Actually, it is quite easy to keep happy him when it comes to treats. Anyways, I went to the website and then followed the step by step instuctions that were accompanied by great snap shots of the method. It really makes life quite easy. I can imagine that it is a slight inconvenience to take photographs in the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you typically have gross hands so I highly appreciate the hard work she put in to build this post .
Having said that I am empowered to present my very own formulas in a similar fashion. Many thanks the thought.
I was fine tuning the original formula to make it for the taste of my family. I must mention it turned out an incredible success. They prized the flavor, the thickness and loved having a treat such as this during a stressful workweek. They ultimately asked for more, a lot more. So the next time I’m not going to commit the same mistake. I am gonna multiply the amount .

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.
