As I recently have a little time, I was surfing on the web a few days ago. In need of new, interesting tips, inspiring dishes that We have never tasted before, to surprise my family with. Hunting for a long time yet could not discover lots of interesting stuff. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I stumbled on this scrumptious and simple treat simply by chance. It seemed so delicious on its photo, it required instant action.

It was simple enough to imagine how it is made, how it tastes and how much boyfriend is going to want it. Actually, it is rather simple to delight the man when it comes to cakes. Yes, I’m a blessed one. Or perhaps he is.Anyhow, I got into the website: Suncakemom and then followed the detailed instuctions that have been combined with great graphics of the process. It just makes life much simpler. I can suppose it’s a bit of a hassle to take pics down the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you may normally have gross hands therefore i highly appreciate the hard work she placed in to make this blogpost .

With that in mind I am empowered presenting my very own formulas in a similar way. Many thanks for the thought.

I had been tweaking the original recipe create it for the taste of my family. I have to mention that it was an awesome success. They prized the taste, the structure and loved having a treat like this in the midst of a hectic week. They ultimately asked for lots more, a lot more. Thus next time I’m not going to make the same mistake. I am likely to twin the quantity to get them delighted.

The origanal hot cross bun recipe is from SunCakeMom

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.
