Steps to make Fluffy Hot Cross Buns:
  1. Note: This recipe uses INSTANT dried yeast that does not need to be dissolved in water. For active dried yeast, mix it with water and sugar and leave to proof for 5-10 minutes before using.
  2. A. Tangzhong - Mix flour and water in a small pot and whisk until there is no lump. Heat this mixture over low heat, keep stirring until it turns into a thick paste. Tangzhong is ready when the spoon used to stir leaves a visible trail all the way to the bottom of the pan. Turn off the heat and leave to cool completely. Cover with plastic wrap to keep it from drying before adding to the bread dough. This tanzhong can be prepared the night before or an hour before baking.
  3. B. Dough - Using a bread maker, place water and A (tangzhong) into the bread pan, followed by the rest of the ingredients in B in the exact order listed. Press ‘dough’ function. Add C (extra ingredients) once dough is formed (or depending on the bread maker instruction). Remove dough from bread pan once bread maker beeps and stops. Proceed to step 5.
  4. If using a stand mixer, the same order applied and knead until dough reaches ‘window pane’ or stretchable. Cover bowl with a greased cling film and place in a warm place to rise or double in size. Depending on temperature in the house, the rising time varies from 45 mins to 1 1/2 hours. Proceed to step 5.
  5. After the first rise, transfer dough to a generously floured work top. Punch dough down. Dough is slightly sticky. Divide dough into 18 equal portions, each weighing around 69g-70g. Very lightly, shape each into a ball. Place balls onto a greased baking tin, about 1-2 cm apart. Cover with greased cling film. Set aside in a warm place for 45 minutes or until buns double in size. Preheat oven to 160°C - 170°C.
  6. D. Topping/Flour paste - Mix water and flour in a bowl. Mix well into a thick paste that is not too thin or way too thick. Spoon into a piping bag or a small plastic bag. Snip off a corner and pipe flour paste over tops of the buns to form lines. Bake buns for 15-20 minutes or until buns turn lightly brown and hollow when tapped. Remove from the oven and immediately brush tops of the buns with E. Next, transfer buns to a cooling rack right away and leave to cool before storing.
