Looking for something for Lent or just a sweet bread to pass the day? Hot cross bun will cover both and keep the house safe!

As I lately have a little time, I was browsing on the web the other day. In need of new, challenging ideas, inspiring meals that We have never tested before, to treat my loved ones with. Searching for a long time unfortunately couldn’t come across lots of interesting things. Just before I thought to give up on it, I discovered this scrumptious and easy dessert by chance. The dessert looked so delightful on its image, it called for quick action.

It had been easy to imagine the way it is created, how it tastes and how much boyfriend will love it. Mind you, it is extremely simple to impress the guy when it comes to puddings. Yes, I’m a lucky one. Or maybe he is.Anyway, I got into the website: Suncakemom and followed the step-by-step instuctions that had been accompanied by wonderful photos of the task. It really makes life faster and easier. I could suppose it is a bit of a hassle to take photographs down the middle of baking in the kitchen as you may normally have gross hands and so i highly appreciate the time and energy she put in for making this blogpost and recipe conveniently followed.

With that said I’m encouraged presenting my own, personal dishes in a similar fashion. Appreciate your the thought.

I had been fine tuning the original formula to make it for the taste of my family. I can mention it was an awesome success. They enjoyed the taste, the consistency and enjoyed having a delicacy such as this in the middle of a stressful week. They quite simply wanted more, a lot more. So next time I’m not going to commit the same mistake. I’m likely to double the volume to keep them happy.

This post is based on hot cross bun recipe recipe 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.
