Easter gluten free hot Cross buns

Happy Easter to all my friends!

I was thinking about Easter post and I found baking totally ideal!

My last baking article was Pumking cake and it was last year, so I think I should post something new.

Don’t get me wrong but I love pastry and everything including bread, doughnuts, etc … I am just a bread lover at all! Yum yum yum ..

As traditional Czech Easter pastry, we have bake Easter lamb which we all love!  Because I’ve moved to London a few years ago I think it’s time to bake traditional English Easter thing.

And here we are!!!

My first Gluten/sugar-free cross buns!

It’s perfect for breakfast or just a little treat!



3 tbsp xylitol, Stevia

400g gluten free flour or bread flour

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp xantham gum

1/2 tsp baking powder

220ml milk/almond milk/soya milk

1 egg

100g mixed dried fruit

1 tsp mixed spice

1 tsp cinnamon

60g melted butter

14 g fast-action dried yeast

The cross

50g gluten free flour

a little bit of water

Egg to glaze


  •  As the first step take a big bowl and put flour, salt, xanthum gum, all spices, and baking powder together.
  • Take a small pan and heat milk with butter until it’s butter is melted. Stir the sugar, yeast and leave it cool down for few minutes.
  • Pour the milk to the flour and beat the egg. Stir the mixture until comes together. Add dried fruit.
  • Take another bowl and stir the oil a bit. Put the dough in and leave it for one hour in a warm place. The dough should rise slightly.
  • After one hour cut the dough into 6 -8 pieces. Roll the pieces into small balls and leave them onto the greased baking sheet. Cover the buns with foil.
  • Preheat the oven to 220°C
  • Now it’s time to make cross paste. Mix the flour with water. Use only a little bit of water. Pipe the paste on cross buns. Just make a cross on each. Brush the buns with beaten egg.
  • Bake the buns for 15-20 minutes until the buns are golden brown.
  • I love to serve the buns hot! Use the butter, jam or cream.

Enjoy … :)

Happy Easter
