    Categories: Breads, Citrus, Spices, Fruits
    Yield: 12 buns

    480 g Flour
    10 g (2 env) instant yeast
    100 g Brown sugar
    1/2 ts Cinnamon
    1/2 ts Nutmeg
    pn Salt
    1/2 ts Baking powder
    1/2 ts Bicarbonate of soda
    1 Lemon (unwaxed); zested
    1 1/4 c Milk
    3 tb Butter
    2 lg Free-range eggs
    1 ts Vanilla extract
    135 g Sultanas and raisins

    MMMMM-----------------------FLOUR PASTE------------------------------
    125 g Flour
    5 tb Water

    65 mL Golden syrup
    65 mL Boiling water

    Set the oven @ 180+|C/355+|F.

    TO MAKE THE HOT CROSS BUNS: Combine the flour, yeast,
    brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, baking powder,
    bicarbonate of soda, lemon zest and dried fruit in a
    large mixing bowl.

    Place the milk and butter in a saucepan and heat gently
    until the butter has melted. Lightly whisk the eggs and
    vanilla together and add to the dry ingredients, along
    with the milk-and-butter mixture.

    Gently mix the dough using your hands or a wooden spoon
    until the mixture comes together.

    Turn the dough out onto a clean surface and knead for 10
    minutes. Place in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with
    clingfilm and place in a warm spot for 1++ hours until
    doubled in size.

    After the dough has risen, knock it down to its original
    size and then roll into 12 evenly shaped buns.

    Place the buns on a greased baking tray and cover with
    clingfilm, leaving enough room for the buns to rise.
    Allow the buns to rise for another 30 minutes.

    To make the flour paste, mix the flour and water
    together to form a smooth paste, place in a Ziploc
    sandwich bag and cut off one of the corners to make a
    piping bag.

    Pipe a cross onto each bun and bake for 15 minutes, or
    until the buns are golden and cooked through. Glaze the
    buns while they are still hot.
