A treat that is welcome any time of the year


Although hot cross buns are associated with Easter, they are a welcome treat any time of the year. If you have been cutting down on your hot cross buns intake due to gluten sensitivity, we have just the recipe for you. These gluten-free hot cross buns are incredibly delicious and will save you from all the side effects you may suffer as a result of gluten.

Preparing hot cross buns is quite an involved process but when they come from the oven spreading their alluring flavour, you will not regret any second you spent preparing these beauties.

Tips when preparing gluten-free hot cross buns

First of all, you need to make sure you have enough time available and lots of patience as this recipe needs the dough to rise a few times. You cannot try to rush the time the dough is proofing.

When placing the dough on the baking tray, make sure you don’t place them too close to each other as you will still need to allow the dough to proof for another 45 minutes and you do not want the dough to touch each other.

When these beauties come from the oven, make sure to brush them while still warm with the apricot jam. This will give the hot-cross buns some sweet stickiness.
