Hot cross buns are a traditional sweet bun that is typically eaten during the Easter season. These buns are typically made with a rich, spiced dough that is studded with raisins or currants and often includes other dried fruits such as candied orange peel. These gluten-free hot cross buns are a delicious and satisfying alternative to traditional hot cross buns.
One of the distinguishing features of hot cross buns is the cross that is cut into the top of each bun before baking. This cross is usually made from a mixture of flour and water or from a sweet glaze, and it is said to represent the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. They’re a great way to celebrate the Easter season and to honor the traditions and history of this ancient and beloved treat.
Today, hot cross buns are a popular treat that can be found in bakeries and supermarkets around the world. They are often enjoyed as a breakfast or brunch item, and are typically served toasted and slathered with butter or jam.
For this recipe I used Schär Bread Mix B but you could also use another similar gluten-free flour blend.
