I LOVE Hot Cross Buns. Unlike others who groan at their appearance in the supermarket on Boxing Day, I am excited.
In the past I have had a few attempts at making my own, but I have never been able to master the texture. They have either been too dense or too dry.
Last week though I made the best Hot Cross Bun I have EVER eaten! They were light, soft and perfectly spiced. Full of fruit and delightful with some butter.
After hearing it’s amazing reviews, I used the recipe from the Thermomix Everyday Cookbook. Making them in the Thermomix made the task so simple – all the more reason to bake them all the time. If you don’t have a Thermomix there is no reason why you can’t make these in a stand mixer or with good ol’ elbow grease. You can find a version of this recipe here.
To make these little baked goods healthier for my family, I used spelt flour and stevia to sweeten. Quirky Cooking also makes some healthy substitutions to this recipe which you can see here.
Seriously, if you like Hot Cross Buns, go make this recipe – NOW. You will not be disappointed!
