How to make Hot Cross Buns
This is a recipe for soft, moist and deliciously spiced hot cross buns. Yields about 50 or more.
1.Soak sulatans and raisins in hot water to eliminate dirt and soften it.
2.Mix flour, sugar, yeast, salt, milk powder and fat into the mixing bowl till slightly crumbly. Add in eggs and let it mix.
3.Slowly add in water but don’t add all at one time. Check the consistency of the dough to decide the amount of water. If it’s dry and not stickying together, add in a lil more water. If the dough is sticky on the outside but dry on the inside, mix it for about 4-5 more minutes on the machine. If dough is sloppy, too much water is added, and thus, you might need to add in flour.
4.When the consistency of dough is achieved, add in the drained sultanas, raisins and mixed peels, and the spices.
5.Let it ferment for about 30 minutes then knock the air out and shape them into round balls at 60g each.
6.Place them on trays and let it prove for about 30 minutes or till double in size. Then make the Cross mixture.
