Description

My glaze is a slightly sweetened frothed egg white which is applied before baking and before the traditional crosses.

Brian and Jim, your hosts will give you a warm welcome with a complimentary drink waiting at your arrival.

Place the eggs and egg yolks into a large bowl and whisk gently to combine (try not to incorporate too much air as you go). As the hot cross buns are an annual event I like to have a play around with my recipe every year, making them vegan one year, playing with the flavours the next.

The four quarters of the cross on top of each bun were said to represent the phases of the moon, while the cross itself symbolised rebirth after winter. Beat up the egg white and sugar together just so that it is frothy then brush over the risen buns very gently and carefully. When the infused milk has reached blood temperature take out the clove and cardamom pods, and beat in the egg. Heat the milk, butter, orange zest, clove and cardamom pods in a saucepan until the butter melts, then leave to infuse.

Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces and roll each into a ball, evenly spacing them out on the tray as you go. There's no point to all this effort and ruining your chances of success over such a small but significant point. Once the dough is smooth, place it in a bowl, cover with cling wrap* then leave it in a warm place until it doubles in size. Don’t forget to make sure all young people and adults involved in the activity know how to take part safely.

Made with a rich, dark chocolate dough and studded with milk and dark chocolate chunks, our extremely chocolatey hot cross buns are a brilliant alternative for anyone who isn't a fan of the traditional fruity versions. I know that probably makes me sound like a cranky old person, moaning about the availability of creme eggs in January, but so be it. Place into a lightly greased bowl and cover with clingfilm, setting aside until doubled in size, about an hour. Eostre was a voluptuous blonde maiden, always depicted surrounded by little birds, bunnies and other baby animals, as well as spring flowers.Continue to boil, and remove from the heat just as the glaze starts to thicken (this should take around 5 minutes). Cross Buns’ were baked to celebrate Eostre, a Germanic Goddess of Fertility, after which the season of Easter is said to be named. To make the flour paste, mix the flour and water together in a small bowl until it’s a smooth paste. When the flying sponge is ready (you will be able to tell because small bubbles will have formed on the surface and it will have expanded in size), pour it into the flour and sugar mix, and start to bring it gently together.

Made in a similar manner to a roux, flour and water (or milk) are mixed together and cooked until thick. Make sure that everyone’s fires have been built outdoors in clear, open areas, with plenty of ventilation, and away from any areas where people will be sleeping.Each bun is decorated with a cross made from flour paste, which represents the cross on which Christ died.
