Healthy Hot Cross Buns
Preparation Time: 2 hours 15 mins
Baking Time: 20 mins
Makes 16 buns
350 g plain bread flour + 150 g wholemeal flour
100 g rolled oats
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
2 teaspoons dried yeast
250 ml low fat milk
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 medium-sized eggs, lightly beaten
250 g raisins
1/2 teaspoon salt
½ cup plain flour
Water, enough to make a thick paste
- In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, orange rind, yeast and salt. Mix well with a spoon.
- In a saucepan, warm the milk. Stir in the vanilla essence and sugar.
- Add milk mixture, whisked eggs and oil to the dry ingredients.
- With your hands, or a dough mixer, mix the ingredients into a dough, adding more flour if needed. Knead well, until mixture is smooth and elastic, no longer sticking to the hand, for about 20 minutes.
- Add the dried fruits and knead lightly to incorporate the fruits into the dough.
- Cover the bowl with a damp cloth and leave the dough to double in size in a warm place, for about an hour.
- Punch the dough and tip it onto a lightly floured kneading board.
- With a knife, divide the dough into 16 equal portions. Shape each portion into a bun, by cupping your hand over the dough and moving in a circular motion.
- Place the buns on a lightly oiled baking tray and cover with a damp cloth. Leave for another 15-20 minutes, or until the buns have doubled in size.
- In the meantime, preheat the oven to 190˚C.
- In a small bowl, mix the plain flour with enough water to make a paste. Spoon the paste into a zip lock bag, cut a small hole at one end of the bag, and pipe a cross on the top of each of the buns.
- Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
