I love hot cross scones at Easter, when they come hot out of the oven and you lather them in a delicious nut butter!029

These hot cross buns are vegan and contain no refined sugar or oil.

  • Juice of half a large orange
  • 2tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1tsp allspice
  • 1tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup white flour for crosses

Method:

  1. Mix together the flour, cinnamon, rapadura, allspice, nutmeg, cloves, salt, raisins and bicarb soda.

  3. Mix well together with a wooden spoon.
  4. Then place mixture on a chopping board that has been sprinkled with flour.
  5. Knead the dough for approximately 2-3mins. You may need to sprinkle more flour if it is sticking.
  6. Roll into 70g balls and place into an oven dish lined with baking paper.
  7. Mix together white flour and water till desired consistency, place in a small piping bag and draw crosses over the buns
