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
100g mixed dried fruit
1 tsp mixed spice
1 tsp cinnamon
60g melted butter
14 g fast-action dried yeast
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 … :)
