Maddy's Chocolate Hot Cross Buns
« on: April 01, 2012, 06:29:20 am »
Maddy's Chocolate Hot Cross Buns  Photos can be seen here.
Ingredients

2 tsp dry yeast
600g bread flour
2 tsp. bread improver
1 tsp salt
2 tblsp. caster sugar
2 tblsp. dutch cocoa
380g milk
2 level tblsp. soft butter
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Bun milk glaze - 1 tablespoon warm milk, that has 1 teaspoon of sugar mixed in.


Warm milk in  *:  1min 40secs, 90c, speed 1.
Add all other ingredients (except choc bits), and mix 6 secs, speed 1
Set to  ::   for 2 minutes.

(You can then add the choc bits, then knead for another minute.....but I chose not to, as the rising was quicker with out them in.)
Place dough in bowl, and rise til doubled (took 45 mins)
Turn out onto mat, stretch to a rectangle shape, sprinkle with the choc bits, and knead it together.
Roll into two fat sausage shapes, and cut each one into 6 even pieces.
Place into a roll tin, lined with grease proof paper, and brush with  warm milk/sugar glaze.
 Meanwhile, heat the oven 170c fan forced, and let the buns rise in tin until doubled.
Once risen, add the crosses (see mixture ingredients below) then bake 25 min - 30 mins in middle of oven.
When cooking has finished, remove from tin and cool on a wire tray.

Piping mixture - Chookies
80g flour
100g water
pinch salt
1 tsp oil
Mix together until smooth. Place into a small ziplock bag, snip off a small piece from one corner and pipe crosses over buns.






I really enjoyed these for a change.

May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Maddy, these look so good.  Think I will have to make some and forget the diet until after Easter.

Yummy, best hot cross buns ever lol that was from the workers fixing some bits and pieces at my home said this morning  ;D
I agree, wonder what it would be like as a fruit loaf and if so how long do you think it would take to cook.

Could you add sugar to the piping mixture?
