About this deal

Tip the dried fruit into the dough and knead it in with your hands, so that it is evenly incorporated. In Ireland, the UK and as far abroad as New Zealand, Australia, Canada and India, Hot Cross Buns are eaten every Good Friday in Christian communities. In 2000 he became Tibor Horváth, how is his civil name, the first Hungarian performer on the world famous Love Parade and currently ranks among the leading Hungarian techno artist. Knead the bowl either by hand or with a machine with a dough hook; if it is too dry add a little more warm milk or water.

The methods are different but both result in flour that has been gelatinised, which means the starch in the flour swells and therefore holds onto to more water than the flour can normally hold. Packed full of juicy sultanas and currants, orange and lemon peel and a unique spice blend, our luxury hot cross buns are amazing served lightly toasted with lashings of butter. It’s OK if some people take different roles in this activity – some people will need to collect materials, watch the fire, and start preparing the food. Cover with a teatowel and leave to prove again for about 45 minutes — they should have risen and almost joined up. Using this recipe, you would think I’ve made them a few times before because the results were amazing!How do you feel about calendar based foods, recipes that are made just for special occasions, traditional foods you can look forward to on their annual arrival?

Brush the buns with an egg wash, and then mix the flour, sugar and 2 tablespoons of water into a smooth, thick paste. Nestle your well worked dough back into the big mixing bowl, cover and rest in a warm place until it has doubled in size, or for 30 minutes, whichever is first. Using a fork, mix well until you have a rough dough, then transfer to a clean flour dusted work surface and knead for around 10 minutes, or until soft and springy. Or just keep the dough as it is, and pinch off pieces slightly larger than a ping pong ball and hope you end up with 16 or thereabouts. Orange – use 2 oranges if you want a more prominent orange flavour, or switch for 1/2 cup candied citrus peel.

Scrape into a small bowl and cover with a piece of clingfilm, to prevent a skin from forming, and set aside until cool. You can also adapt the recipe easily, keeping the amounts the same but changing out the type of fruit. If you need a sheltered cooking area, consider an open sided gazebo, dining shelter or a marquee that has sufficient air circulation and ventilation.

Carefully take the buns from the warm place and pipe the flour paste to form crosses over the top of each bun. To shape the hot cross buns cover the pieces of dough with a kitchen towel to prevent them drying out.Working with one piece of dough at a time, fold the outer edges of the dough into the middle, doing this a few times to create some tension, pinching the seam to seal.
