Hot-cross buns
Filed under: - Bread, - Easter

Happy Easter means yummy hot-cross buns…. So here is our favourite recipe (a la Delia)

 

Bun ingredients:

Cross ingredients:

Glaze ingredients:

Directions

[1 hour passes… = drink at least one bucket of tea!]

[ca. 30 minutes pass…. = more tea?]

[ ca. 15 minutes pass… maybe save the bucket of tea to enjoy with the finished buns?]

Now just enjoy a bun or 5 with yet another bucket of tea!!

 

And, as usual, some before and after photos.  We tried to make the ‘cross’ both with a pastry dough and with simply using a knife and cutting deep grooves in the buns before baking them.  Both works although the pastry dough approach is more visually pleasing, right?:

 

Cutting up the pastry strips  Ready for the oven

Brushing on the glaze Ready to be eaten
