    I love hot cross buns except for the big massive cross on them..

    I'm making my own version : hot cross-less buns

    Here is the recipe:

    Ingredients
    3 cups plain flour
    3/4 cup warm milk
    3 table-spoons butter(room temp)-cubed
    2 teaspoons cinnamon
    1 cup sultanas/raisans (as much as u like really)
    2 eggs
    1 sachet of dry yeast
    1/2 cup sugar

    Method:

    1. Place yeast and milk in a bowl with 1 tablespoon of sugar
    2. Keep covered in warm place for 10 minutes or untll bubley
    3. Mix eggs, spices, sugar in another bowl
    4. Rub butter into flour in another bowl
    5. Once yeast has risen add the egg mix as well as the flour
    6. Knead mixture untill firm but still sticky
    7. Add the sultanas and continue kneading
    8. Add flour if necessary to make a nice piece of elastic dough

    Here is wat it should look like



    Cover up the bowl and leave in warm place until the dough doubles in size

    Rest of instructions when i finish making it insha allah

    Now for stage 2

    This is wat it looks like when it doubles in size: (didnt take too long cos i put it next to the heater )


    Now punch the dough down and knead it for one minute

    Take a handful of dough and shape it into a ball and place on a buttered tray
    Do that untill ur finished with the dough



    Cover again and place in a warm place to rise

    Masha-Allah laa quwwata illah billah!

    They turned out delicious masha-Allah. I did, however, use pitted dates (diced) instead, because i didn't like the look of my sultanas.

    Thanks for the excellent recipe sis

    I hate to say this but I was told dry yeast isn't halal.

    Not 100% sure though.
