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 most recently have some time, I had been surfing on the web last week. Looking for fresh, challenging tips, inspiring meals that We have never tested before, to impress my family with. Looking for a long time but could not discover any interesting stuff. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I found this yummy and easy dessert by chance over Suncakemom. The dessert seemed so delightful on its image, it called for rapid action.

It had been not difficult to imagine how it’s made, its taste and just how much my husband is going to like it. Mind you, it is quite easy to impress the guy in terms of cakes. Yes, I am a blessed one. Or maybe he is.Anyhow, I got into the site and used the simple instuctions which were accompanied by nice images of the process. It really makes life rather easy. I could suppose it’s a bit of a effort to take pics in the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you may typically have gross hands so that i really appreciate the time and effort she devote for making this post .

With that said I am encouraged to present my own recipes in a similar way. Appreciate your the idea.

I was tweaking the initial recipe to make it for the taste of my loved ones. Need to tell you it had been an awesome success. They enjoyed the taste, the structure and loved getting a treat like this during a lively week. They quite simply demanded lots more, many more. So the next occasion I am not going to make the same miscalculation. I’m gonna double the amount .

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.
