You can also become something of a hot cross bun heretic and change the filling completely, to something like chocolate chips, but the less talk of that the better.

As you take the buns out of the oven, brush them with your glaze using a pastry brush while they are still hot.Here, you mix a proportion of your flour with the yeast and liquid (milk, in this instance), and leave it to ferment for a period of time. Or just keep the dough as it is, and pinch off pieces slightly larger than a ping pong ball and hope you end up with 16 or thereabouts.

When the infused milk has reached blood temperature take out the clove and cardamom pods, and beat in the egg.Add the milk and 50ml water to a small pan and place over a low heat for a few minutes, or until slightly warm – you should be able to dip your finger in without scalding it. While your batter is resting, place the remaining flour, salt, mixed spice and sugar in a separate bowl. Turn the mixer to medium and knead for about 10-15 minutes or until a smooth silky dough is formed, which is no longer sticking to the bottom or sides of the bowl.

Scrape into a small bowl and cover with a piece of clingfilm, to prevent a skin from forming, and set aside until cool. Place the sugar and water together in a small pan and bring gently to the boil, allowing the sugar to dissolve.The four quarters of the cross on top of each bun were said to represent the phases of the moon, while the cross itself symbolised rebirth after winter. There are very few things in this world that can rival the smell of freshly baked homemade Hot Cross Buns, fresh out of the oven.

Pour over the warm milk and egg mix then start your machine going on its lowest setting and mix for 3-4 minutes or until the dough has started to come together but is scraggy – then add the soaked fruit. Yeast test if you’re concerned: in tiny bowl, mix 2 tbsp very warm tap water with pinch of sugar and 1/4 tsp yeast. This increases the chance of the fuel burning without enough oxygen present, increasing the risk of carbon monoxide exposure .Soaking the fruit in this manner makes the fruit more pleasant to eat but also prevents it from burning when the fruit is on the outside of the buns.
