Today is Easter Sunday. I remember I saw this recipe in Alex Goh cookbook The World of Bread and decided to try making them.
I kneaded the dough by hand. These turned out quite soft.
I replaced the the raisins n mixed peel with a handful of dried cranberries instead.
250 gm bread flour
35 gm sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tbsp milk powder
1/8 tsp cinnamon powder
2 tsps instant yeast
100 ml cold milk
25 gm unsalted butter softened
70 gm raisins
30 gm mixed peel
I replaced with only 40 gm dried cranberries cut into smaller pcs
Topping paste to make the X
50 gm plain flour mixed with 1 tbsp oil and 60 ml water
Mix ingredients A together in a bowl - I used a whisk
Add in B n mix to form a dough
Then I took it out n placed on my mat
I added in part C butter
Knead till no longer so sticky about 10 mins
Add in cranberries and mix in.
Shape into a ball n use the bowl to cover.
Proof for 45 minutes.
Then mould dough into 4 balls n rest for 15 mins. I used the bowl to cover.
Prepare baking tray with baking paper.
I used 2 trays
Then form 45-50 gm balls with the dough .
Place the doughs slightly apart on the tray.
Cover with cling film n let them proof for 45 mins.
Prepare the topping paste.
After proofing , beat an egg with a teaspoon water to use as egg wash.
Preheat oven to 190c.
Egg wash the buns.
Pipe a X on the buns with the topping paste.
Bake for 13 mins.
Remove and cool completely on rack before storing.
