Hot Cross Buns!
People don’t spice hot cross buns enough. These have ginger/cloves/nutmeg/cinnamon/allspice/pepper, about a teaspoon each. Also rye flour, because why not?
4 cups flour (I used 2 cups white, 1.5 cups rye, 1/2 cup rice)
4 tsp yeast
All those spices
1/4 cup sugar
1.5 cups mixed fruit (currants/sultanas/mixed peel/whatever else you like… I would have added coconut if I had it)
1 cup milk
Mix dry stuff including fruit together. Melt butter in milk, add to dry, mix a little, add egg. Knead 10 minutes. Leave it to rise for an hour, hour+half. Shape into 12 buns on a baking paper lined tray. Rise for half an hour. Bake at 190c for 20 minutes.
If you want crosses, make them with flour and water in a thick paste, and spread them on just before cooking the buns. If you want delicious, make a sugar syrup by boiling 1/4 cup sugar with a little water, and brush it on the cooked buns.
