11/2 Cups of dried fruit (can be all sultanas or all fruit medley or a combination of both)

¼ tub mixed to a paste with water
1 egg beaten with 1 Tablespoon water

    1. Line Swiss Roll Tray/Hot Cross Bun Tray with Glad Bake.
    2. Mix all dry ingredients including the fruit and make a well.
    3. Stir the liquid thoroughly and pour ¾ of the liquid, mix thoroughly, add enough of the remaining liquid to make a moist, stiff dough. Place cling film(tea towel) on top of the bowl and allow to double in size.
    4. When risen, turn out dough onto a well floured board, shape into a ball. Divide the dough into quarters and quarter into 3 equal pieces.
    5. Roughly shape each piece into a ball. Place on tray evenly.
    6. Brush with egg glaze and pipe on cross mix. Allow buns to double in size.
    7. Place in a pre-heated oven for 25-30minutes or until golden brown.
    8. Turn onto a cooling rack and brush with glossy glaze.

    INSTANT PORRIDGE...Comes in your kit – enough for 4 dozen hot cross buns. Make sure that you stir iit well into the water so that it absorbs as much as possible.

    ...enough for 4 dozen hot cross buns. You can make more than you need and keep it in the piping bottle for 24 hours in the refrigerator. Add enough water at first to make a stiff dough gradually add more water beating with a fork until you reach a batter mix stage, pour into bottle(if it won’t pour then it needs to be thinned out with just a few drops more of water.

     GLOSSY GLAZE...You can make as much as you wish and it will keep in the refrigerator for months, it can be used to brush across fruit breads and if you decide to make more buns without crosses just brush it on top for a lovely sticky fruit bun. If you add too much water the glaze will be too runny so just add a little more baker’s icing until it becomes slightly syrupy. If it is too thick just add a few drops more of boiling water.

     FRUIT OF YOUR CHOICE...We find that a combination of fruit medley and sultanas gives your hot cross buns a lovely tang but feel free to add any combination that suits you, it could be all sultanas, raisins, even currants if you wish or all fruit medley, mixed fruit with cherries would give you an alternative, whatever you have in your cupboard.

     IF YOU DO NOT LIKE FRUIT....You can make the buns without fruit but you would make only 9 buns instead of a dozen. Try using Dutch Cocoa in place of the cinnamon, add a few chocolate buttons to make Chocolate Easter Buns.

Bread making tip

A Report by Nutrition Reseach Australia found that if we all ate one more serve of grainy fibre a day(the toast bit of your brekkie), we'd save $1.5 billion a year in the treatment of cardiovascular diseas and type 2 diabetes. 80% of people do not eat enough daily fibre. So eat plenty of fruit, veg and wholegrains - use wholemeal, Verona and add some grain mixes to your next bread recipe.

Sourdough loaf...a truly satisfying way to make delicious bread!

In Summary the Benefits to Sourdough Preparation:
Increases beneficial lactic acid
The longer rise time needed for sourdough increases the lactic acid and creates an ideal pH for the enzyme phytase. This enzyme breaks down phytates more effectively than in yeast breads. Sourdough rye has the least amount of phytates making it a healthier bread.
Predigestion of starches
The bacteria and yeast in the sourdough culture work to predigest the starches in the grains, thus making it more easily digestible to the consumer.
Breakdown of gluten
Here again, the longer soaking and rising times in the preparation of sourdough breaks the protein gluten into amino acids, making it more digestible.
The acetic acid which is produced along with lactic acid, helps preserve the bread by inhibiting the growth of mold.

Sourdough bread made with wild yeast, bacteria, and high quality bread flour is the oldest and most original form of leavened bread. It truly is an ancient art that is crafted in harmony with nature.
