SALTED CARAMEL HOT CROSS BUNS

1 April 2020

By 1st April 2020 No Comments

We think home made Hot Cross Buns are always so much better than shop bought ones. And these bad boys created by @gingervegan are no exception. While you’re stuck at home during these crazy times, why not roll your sleeves up and get stuck in. They’re well worth the effort!

Ingredients

 

MAKES 6

 

270g strong white flour

 

270ml oat milk or other plant milk

 

130g Salted Caramel Protein Powder

 

100g raisins, dried mixed fruit or chocolate chips

 

70g vegan butter

 

50g dark brown soft sugar

 

7g Easybake yeast

 

2 tsp mixed spice

 

1 tsp cinnamon

 

1/2 tsp salt

 

 

FOR THE CROSSES

 

35g white flour and 3 tbsp water

 

To glaze: maple or agave syrup

Method

 

In a small pan melt the butter and sugar together. When the butter has melted add the oat milk and stir to combine. Remove from the heat and set aside while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

 

Mix together the flour, protein powder, yeast, salt and spices in a large mixing bowl.

 

Check that the milk mixture is no warmer than lukewarm and pour into the bowl with the flour. Mix together in the bowl until you have picked up all the flour then transfer to a work surface to knead.

 

Knead in the raisins a few at a time until they are all incorporated. Continue kneading for 5 minutes in total.

 

Place back in the bowl and leave to rise for about 2 hours.

 

Divide into 6 pieces and form into balls. Flatten slightly with your hand.

 

Place onto a baking sheet and cover with cling film. Leave to rise for about an hour.
Switch the oven on to 180C.

 

In a small bowl combine the flour and 3 tbsp water until you have a thick paste. Put into a piping bag and pipe crosses over the buns.

 

Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.

 

Cool on a wire rack.
