Hot Cross Buns
« on: April 06, 2009, 07:55:45 am »
I recently made the Hot Cross Buns recipe from the Thermomix book. I made a slight change and replaced the currants with extra sultanas. These were the most successful Hot Cross Buns I've ever made. One small complaint - the cross mixture for the top was a little runny and next time I would reduce the amount of water.

You can see them here.

Might be best to contact Barbara via the winosandfoodies site - she hasn't been here since that post.

Hi Cathy
I made the recipe that is in the Thermomixer book. I just replaces the currants with sultanas.

Sorry Cathy I misunderstood.  The top cross mixture is as written book. I'd reduce the amount of water when making them.

Thanks, I didn't realise that the recipe you used was from the EDC book.  I'll have to give them a try sometime.  Any time is "fruit bun" time.

Made these yesterday without the crosses.  They were delicious, very light & fluffy, and very easy.  Just keep a very close eye on them at the end of baking, there is a fine line between cooked and slightly overcooked.  And burnt sultanas are not nice.  I'm sure I only cooked them for the recommended time, but they were a little overdone.
