IngredientsMakes: 12 hot cross buns

  • For the buns
  • 310ml warm milk (43 degrees C)
  • 60g caster sugar
  • 2 (7g) sachets dried active dried yeast
  • 600g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 60g butter
  • 250g raisins or sultanas
  • 2 eggs
  • For the crosses and glaze
  • 60g plain flour
  • 60ml water
  • 2 tablespoons apricot jam, warmed and strained

MethodPrep:15min ›Cook:25min ›Extra time:1hr proofing › Ready in:1hr40min

    For the buns:

  1. In a bowl, whisk together the milk, sugar and yeast until all the sugar has dissolved. Cover and set aside until the yeast has activated and the mixture has become frothy.
  2. In a large bowl sift together the flour, salt, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. With your fingers rub in the butter until the result looks like fine breadcrumbs.
  3. Stir into the flour mixture the raisins, eggs and frothy yeast then mix until all are combined. Bring the mixture together into a dough.
  4. On a lightly floured surface knead the dough for about 5 minutes until smooth and elastic. Transfer dough to a large lightly oiled bowl then cover with cling film and leave in a warm place for 45 minutes to prove or until the dough has doubled in size.
  5. Remove the risen dough from the bowl and knock it back with your fist. Slightly knead then either divide into 12 buns, or if you wish to add other ingredients such as apple or chocolate chips to some of your buns then divide the dough into 3 sections, add the ingredients accordingly then create 4 buns from each section. You should have 12 buns total, whichever option you choose.
  6. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Grease a 20x30cm deep cake tin.
  7. Place the buns neatly in rows into the prepared baking tin; cover with cling film then leave in a warm place to rise for 15 minutes.
  8. For the crosses and glaze:

  9. Whisk together the flour and water to form a smooth paste. Transfer to a piping bag, then carefully pipe a cross onto the top of each bun.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 180 C / Gas 4 and bake for a further 15 minutes until risen and golden.
  11. Straight after removing the buns from the oven brush with the warmed apricot jam and serve.

My mom used to make these buns for Christmas breakfast or Easter breakfast. Did your family have a similar tradition tied to this dessert? This was something the older generation passed down, but by the time it got to me and my cousins and siblings, it was not encourage like it was when my mom was a kid. I like the buns, but it has been a long time since I had them.

This post was originally published in March 2016 – it has been retested, rephotographed and republished (to make it better for you!) in April 2019

It's nearly Easter! And guess how many Easter Eggs I've already eaten? Trick question. Actually none. Probably because we are still working our way through the mountain of Christmas chocolate we were given. Yes, we are thooooose people that can sit in a room with chocolate and not eat it. How? No idea, but the pull of the miniature Reese's Pieces Eggs is getting stronger. I give it til Wednesday. Until then, let's make my favourite Easter treat. hot cross buns!

Before we start I'd like to point out that making bread is a long process. The whole process from start to finish will take you about 3 hours, maybe longer if you dawdle. as I tend to do. But don't fret! This does include about 2 hours rising time so it's not all hands on, leaving lots of time for kitchen dance parties and watching Adele carpool karaoke on YouTube.

The ingredient list also looks quite long, but it's all simple stuff. It may seem daunting, but I can assure you, it will be totally worth it. The smell of freshly baked hot cross buns is drool worthy, and they taste SO much better than the buns you get from the supermarket. Especially with a 4 day weekend coming up (YAY). do it!!

Click here to pin this to your Easter recipes board on Pinterest to save it for later!
Quick bread making tips:
    1. Use high grade flour - this is a simple step and a really important one. High grade flour has a higher protein (gluten) content which is what gives the bread its delicate texture. It costs the same as plain flour and makes a world of difference when making bread.
    2. Use fresh yeast. Don't be pulling an old jar of yeast out of the pantry and expecting it to work wonders. Test it for freshness by dissolving 1 teaspoon sugar in ½ cup warm water (45°C/115°F). Sprinkle 2-¼ teaspoons active dry yeast ( I use Edmond's Surebake Yeast) over it, stir and let stand for 10 minutes, If it's active it will start to bubble and will look sort of foamy. If not, the yeast is dead. If in doubt, throw it out and start again.
    3. If it's warm where you are, leaving the dough to rise on a sunny windowsill will work perfectly. If it's cold, put it in the hot water cupboard, on top of the fireplace or in the warming draw of your oven.

    And to make it even easier for you, I've added step by step photos and a break down of the time involved at the bottom of the post.

    So now that the serious stuff is out of the way, let's talk about these buns.

    It is a basic sweet bread dough made Easter-y with the addition of cinnamon, mixed spice, nutmeg and is chock-full of currants, raisins & mixed peel. If you are one of those weird people that can't stand dried fruit you can leave it out of these and just have spiced buns. They won't be as good, but that's your call!

    The piped crosses on top are also optional but if you leave them off you have to call them Easter Buns instead. beeeeecause I said so. And there would be no hot cross on it. duh. Plus piping is fun. So I guess this step just became compulsory.

    These buns are sweet, spicy, fruity and just plain delicious. Smother them in buttah, serve with a coffee and Happy Easter to you my friend. My other favourite way to eat them? Covered in NUTELLA!! It's almost a sin to cover something so perfect in chocolate buuuut. do it anyway. And don't tell my grandmother.

    Step by step:

    (Note: I used to add the fruit after the first rise as pictured below, I have changed this and now add them at the beginning with all other ingredients, just to keep it simple! The recipe card details how I do it now.)

    Instructions

    Preheat oven to 350°F. Gently stretch each biscuit into 4-inch circle. Mix cinnamon and brown sugar in small bowl. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon mixture and 1 tablespoon raisins over half of each biscuit. Fold over plain biscuit half onto raisin half. Fold again, pinching edges to seal. Gently shape into a ball. Repeat with remaining biscuits. Place buns in lightly greased 9-inch cake pan, evenly spacing them apart. Brush bun tops with beaten egg.

    Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove buns onto cooling rack cool completely.

    Mix confectioners’ sugar and water in small bowl. Spoon into small resealable plastic bag. Cut a small piece from one of the bottom corners of bag. Close bag tightly then pipe the shape of an X on top of each bun.


    Editor's Note:

    To make this recipe in a stand mixer, combine warm water and yeast in the bowl of the mixer and let soften for about 5 minutes. Add flour, milk powder, sugar, salt, egg, and egg white. Mix on low speed using the dough hook, scraping the dough down occasionally, for 10 minutes. Add the softened butter, cinnamon, and currants and mix for an additional 5 minutes. Transfer the dough to a greased bowl, cover it with plastic wrap and a kitchen towel, and allow it to rise until doubled, about 1 hour. Proceed with the recipe instructions.

    Instructions for Making This Recipe

    Gather your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table. Prepare your ingredients. Using a knife and cutting board, chop raisins into small bits.

    Raisins are easier to find in our area of the country, but if you have access to dried black currants, they would be wonderful in this recipe.

    In a large mixing bowl, add in the granulated sugar, water, whole milk, melted butter, large egg, and vanilla extract. Mix until combined.

    In a small bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, instant yeast, salt, ground cinnamon, freshly ground nutmeg, and ginger. Mix until the dough becomes thick and shaggy. Stir in chopped raisins.

    Knead with your hands or a dough hook until soft and elastic, 5-7 minutes. Shape into a ball and place in a greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise until double, about one hour.

    Forming the Rolls:

    To form the rolls, divide the dough into twelve equal portions. Tuck the edges of the dough under to make round rolls and place them seam-side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Cover with greased plastic wrap or a clean tea towel and allow to rise for 40-60 minutes until double. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

    To make the egg wash, in a small bowl, whisk together the egg and water. Brush the tops of the rolls with the beaten egg.

    Bake in preheated oven for 25-27 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack.

    Making the Glaze:

    To make the glaze, in a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, whole milk, vanilla extract, and lemon zest until smooth.

    Transfer the icing to a plastic bag and make a small cut in the corner of the bag. Ice buns with a thick cross shape over the top. This recipe will make 12 rolls. They are best served freshly baked, and while still warm.


    1. Whisk together the milk, egg and yeast. Tip the flour, sugar, salt, mixed spice with the mixed peel and sultanas into the bowl of a mixer, mix with a using a dough hook while adding the liquid, once combined add the butter a little at a time and continue to knead with a dough hook until the dough has an elastic consistency.
    2. Tip the dough out onto a floured surface and cut the dough into 10 pieces, mould each into a ball using the palm of your hand in a circular motion, push down firmly and the dough will spring back. Arrange the balls in the oven tray leaving a 2cm gap between each one. Leave in a warm place covered with a clean damp tea towel to proof for 1 hr 30 mins - 2 hrs, until they have almost doubled in size. Heat oven 250C, Gas 9.
    3. To makes the crosses: mix the flour, oil with 5tbsp water, put into a piping bag and pipe crosses over the buns.
    4. Put the buns in the oven and bake for 20 mins until golden on top.
    5. For the glaze: Heat the cinnamon and jam with 1tsp of water in a small pan, mix to combine and brush over the warm buns.

    Leftover buns are delicious the next day lightly toasted, or used them up in a hot cross bun style bread and butter pudding


    Texture of No Yeast Hot Cross Buns

    I will be totally honest, it is not 100% the same texture as the Buns made with yeast.

    The buns also do not rise all that high. The final height is about 5 centimeters (2 inches) which is not that bad at all.

    This is more a recipe which reminds me of scones. Or biscuits as some would call it. But with a softer and more moist texture if you get what I mean.

    Now, for a quick fix to your craving for Hot Cross Buns, this is the recipe for you !
