Hot Cross Buns step by 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..
  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)..
  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..
  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..
  5. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200°C (400°F)..
  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..
  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!)..
  8. Let the hot cross buns cool on a wire rack, and enjoy for Easter!.
