Sourdough Hot Cross Buns

The sourdough hot cross buns I did last year were delicious… so I’m doing them again!

As with last year there’s a plain sodo batch, and an apple version for the rye sourdough.

Wow – that’s a full bowl for the sodo version…

Anyway… autolyse… stretch fold, rise in proofer… blah blah blah: it’s just bread :) Hehe I do like that I now consider any form of bread just… easy bread. Two years ago… I had no idea how to do bread, and was scared of any bread recipe!

Anyway: make into buns, proof in the top oven while the the main oven heats up. Then cross them.

Then glaze with jam, plum in this case due to a lack of the normal apricot, and they start to look like proper hot cross buns!

And very similar for the rye & apple version.
