I’m in the throes of making hot cross buns today, Good Friday, 2017. My buns are at the moment in the fridge having their overnight first prove. If you’ve not done this before, a slow fridge prove creates a flavour superior to a short warm prove.
But more of these buns anon when they’re out of the oven!
Here are my three favourite hot cross buns so far in my Easter baking journey, two Jamie Oliver recipes and a Paul Hollywood recipe. I have shown photos of each, with a link to my recipes in previous posts.
Making your own hot cross buns is fun, seasonal and very very satisfying!
No 1. Jamie Oliver Hot Cross Buns from the Jamie Oliver website
No 2. Jamie Oliver Hot Cross Buns from Jamie Magazine
No 3. Paul Hollywood’s book “How to Bake” and it’s on his website too.
