Hot Cross Bun http://www.sourdough.com/taxonomy/term/240/all en One a penny, two a penny... http://www.sourdough.com/recipes/one-penny-two-penny <p>This recipe was posted in a forum <a href="http://sourdough.com/recipes/sourdough-hot-cross-buns">Dom kicked off a few years back</a>, and since I was finding Hot cross Bun recipes using sourdough hard to find, I thought I'd remind you of this one ........ just in case anyone was looking for a great one.&nbsp; This is a hybrid recipe, but it's just lovely.&nbsp; The sourdough gives the buns substance - unlike all the airy-fairy waste of times ones that are on offer in most shops.</p><p>Dom mentioned the recipe was a version of Jeffery Hamelman's recipe in 'Bread'.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><fieldset

<div class="field-label">Method:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>You first make a <em>sponge</em> using the first four ingredients, mix and leave for one hour - mine got nice and frothy and almost looked like it wanted to rise.</p><p>Then for the <em>dough</em>, add the remaining ingredients to the sponge.&nbsp; Dom said to rub the butter into the flour, but I just softened it and then mixed it.&nbsp; It was pretty much blended in after kneading.&nbsp; Once the ingredients were all 'wet' I let it sit for about 15 mins, then tipped it out onto an oiled bench, oiled my hands and gave it 10 second knead.&nbsp; The dough was quite wet so I did have to use my dough scraper to scoop the clingons off the bench.</p><p>I let it sit for 10 minutes while I cleaned out my bowl (actually I used my large preserving pan to mix it in as I made a double recipe).&nbsp;&nbsp;I then oiled the 'bowl' and gave&nbsp;the dough&nbsp;another 10sec knead, and plopped it back in the 'bowl' for another 10 minutes.&nbsp; I did this twice more (by which time the dough wasn't nearly so sticky), then let it ferment at room temp for about 2 hours with a fold at half time.&nbsp; The evening air temp here is about 20C at the moment.&nbsp;</p><p>After the ferment&nbsp;I tipped it out on to a bench floured with rice flour and divided it up into about 100g pieces - both times I've made this recipe this week (double recipe) I got exactly 23 buns - they were all mostly just over 100g.</p><p><img title="" alt="" style="width: 678px; height: 517px" src="/bread/resize/recipes/dough weighed out-678x517.jpg" width="678" height="517"/></p><p>&nbsp;I let the cut dough rest for about 5 mins then shaped them into rolls and put them on oven trays - my first batch I put baking paper on the oven tray, the second batch I just floured the tray with rice flour, both methods were fine.</p><p><img title="" alt="" style="width: 692px; height: 542px" src="/bread/resize/recipes/shaped pre proof-692x542.jpg" width="692" height="542"/></p><p>I then let them proof at RT covered in a towel for about one hour.&nbsp; Before putting them in the oven, I piped on crosses using a mixture of flour (60g), water (40g)&nbsp;and oil (15g) - I added a bit more water to make the consistency right for piping.&nbsp; The second time around I used some cornflour as well as didn't think the crosses on the first lot were that obvious, however they cracked during cooking so maybe next time I'll use a little less cornflour - the colour of the cross was better though (sorry about the ugly looking bag with the remnants of the piping mixture behind the tray!)</p><p><img title="" alt="" style="width: 703px; height: 1012px" src="/bread/resize/recipes/first batch ready to bake-703x1012.jpg" width="703" height="1012"/></p><p>I baked them at just over 200C for about 25 minutes, switching the trays around in the oven at half time.&nbsp; Actually the first batch I baked I had the oven at only 200C and they didn't colour up as much as I would have liked, so i bumped it up a bit tonight when I made the second batch.</p><p>After removing them from the oven I brushed them with a sugar syrup (equal parts water and sugar, heated in the microwave until sugar dissolved), then tried to let them cool before seeing how they tasted!&nbsp; Like little red riding hood I took a basket full to work and they were scoffed in a flash - needless to say my staff were pretty happy with me on Wednesday!&nbsp;&nbsp; .............. other days perhaps not so much!<img

although haven't tried them yet, so maybe looks don't count for much!<img title="" alt="" width="780" height="585" src="/bread/resize/recipes/Image000-780x585.jpg" /></p><p>Thought it would be remiss of me if I didn't include a crumb shot .......&nbsp;then thought&nbsp;the wee bun&nbsp;looked so good cut open and wouldn't it&nbsp;be a shame not to eat it?!&nbsp; Quite happy to say the taste as good as they look! :o)&nbsp; Might even make this my first link to Susan's <a href="http://www.wildyeastblog.com/category/yeastspotting/">YeastSpotting</a>!</p><p>Happy Easter everyone, and thanks Dom
