Ingredients
 

  • 650 g strong white flour
  • pinch salt
  • 50 g caster sugar
  • 2 tsp mixed spice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 10 g dried yeast, (1½ packets) of 7g sachet
  • 60 g sultanas
  • 85 g melted salted butter
  • 300 ml warm full cream milk
  • 80 g plain flour
  • 3 tbsp water

For the Glaze

  • 150 g caster sugar
  • 75 ml sugar
  • ½ tsp mixed spice

Instructions
 

  • Place the flour, salt, sugar, spices and yeast into a bowl and mix.
  • Add the fruit, peel and mix again.
  • Add the melted butter and 3/4 of the milk, mix to a soft dough. Add more milk if needed. The dough must not be too dry (tight)
  • Knead well for 2-3 minutes, then place in a warmed bowl cover with film and leave to prove until roughly double in size.
  • Gently turn the dough out and just bring it together, do not knead vigorously.
  • Cut 18-20 pieces and gently roll into a bun shape.
  • Place on a baking tray equally and cover lightly with film and leave in a warm place. You want them to double in size.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 200C gas 6.
  • Once proved, mix 80g plain flour with a little water to form a pipeable paste.
  • Using a piping bag, go right across the buns in one direction, then the other way to form a cross.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes until well risen and lightly browned.
  • Boil the sugar, water and spice until thick and syrupy.
  • Once the buns are cooked, remove them from the oven. Place on a wire rack with parchment underneath.
  • Paint the hot glaze over the hot buns, leave to cool and set
