How to Make Hot Cross Buns

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 8 steps you must follow to make Hot Cross Buns in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Mix all the dough ingredients in a large bowl until it forms a ball of dough you can knead. Remove to a board sprinkled with flour and knead for about 10 minutes until the dough is smooth, soft and elastic.
  • Step 2
  • Form the dough into a ball and put back into the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rise until about doubled in size (usually 1 hour but if it's chilly it could take 2 hours).
  • Step 3
  • Once the dough is about double in size, bring it back to the floured board and knead it briefly to push out the air. Divide it into 8 equal pieces.
  • Step 4
  • With each piece of dough, form round buns. Place the 8 buns on a floured or lined baking tray (leave a little space in between) and cover lightly with a tea towel. Let rise for about another 30 minutes.
  • Step 5
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200°C (400°F).
  • Step 6
  • To make the crosses, mix together a small amount of flour with a little water until it forms a thick paste. Use the paste to make crosses across the top of each bun.
  • Step 7
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until the hot cross buns are golden. While the buns are baking, mix together the marmalade/apricot jam and water, then brush it over the buns when they come out of the oven (still hot!).
  • Step 8
  • Let the hot cross buns cool on a wire rack, and enjoy for Easter!
