There's nothing like a good hot cross bun around Easter time especially one that is fresh out of the oven. These buns are fluffy, delicious and taste just like the real thing. They are simple to make and are free from dairy, egg, yeast and any nasty ingredients that are often in the store bought varieties. They are made with a sourdough culture that helps them rise, adds a yummy flavour and makes them more digestible.
If you don't have a sourdough starter on hand you can make your own from scratch. Generally they take about a week to establish but I've got a super simple method for you that will give you an active bubbly starter ready to bake with overnight!
You can find that recipe here.
