My family love hot cross buns, but we're not a fan of peel which is often in store bought buns. We make our own buns with sultanas and no peel. I truly believe home made buns are much tastier than store bought ones.


Preparation Time: 15 minutes plus 90 minutes rising time
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 18

Ingredients
4 cups plain flour
2 1/4 tsp dried yeast
350 ml milk
1 egg, whisked
2 tbs oil
2 tbs sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tbs mixed spice
1 tbs ground cinnamon
1 cup sultanas

For the crosses
1/4 cup plain flour
2 tbs water

Method
Add the flour, yeast, sugar, salt, mixed spice, sultanas and cinnamon to a bowl, stir to combine.
Add the milk, egg and oil and stir until a dough forms.
Place dough on a floured surface and knead for 10 minutes until dough is smooth and elastic. Place in a bowl, cover and let rise for 60 minutes or until doubled in size.
Punch dough down and divide it into 18 pieces. Shape them into little rounds and place them close together on a baking tray. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes or until doubled in size.

Preheat oven to 190C.
Mix together the flour and water for the crosses until a paste is formed. Place the paste in a piping bag and pipe a cross onto each bun.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden.
Transfer buns to a wire rack to cool.
Best served warm with large quantities of butter.
