One a penny, two a penny! Hot cross buns!

Hi everyone!

How have you been?

Last Thursday I wrote a post about Easter in England and I thought that I may share with you my recipe for traditional and appetising hot cross buns! I suppose you’ll manage to do that on your own. Enjoy your meal!

A recipe: Hot cross buns

For the yeast batter

100 g flour
25 g yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
150 ml milk
5 tablespoons water

For the dough

350 g flour
50 g sugar
50 g soft butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 egg
150 g currants and raisins

For the top mixture

4 tablespoons milk
40 g sugar

To make the yeast batter

Mix the flour, yeast and sugar. Warm the milk and water. Add it to the flour, yeast and sugar. Mix it. Put the bowl in a warm place for about 30-40 minutes.

To make the dough

Mix together the flour, salt, cinnamon and sugar. Stir the butter and egg with the yeast batter. Add the flour, salt, cinnamon and sugar mixture to the batter. Add the fruit and start kneading the dough. Divide the dough into bun-shaped 10-12 pieces. Put the buns onto a baking tray with baking paper. Cover the buns and leave them in a warm place to rise for about 1 hour. You may use a knife to cut a cross on the top of each bun. Bake them in a oven (210C) for 20 minutes.

To make the top mixture

Mix sugar and milk in a pan. Slowly boil the mixture, stirring all the time. Drizzle the hot buns with the top mixture. Leave it to cool.

You’d better taste it. You won’t regret it!

Cheers! Happy Easter!
