  • Summary

    Whether they're freshly baked or toasted, I love these buns and bake a batch whenever it takes my fancy, leaving off the crosses if it isn't Easter. I also like to vary the dried fruit – a mix of chopped dates, cranberries, apricots, and cherries is particularly good.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups (8.8 ounces/250g) white bread flour, plus extra for dusting
    • 2 cups (8.8 ounces/250g) all-purpose white flour
    • 1/2 cup warm water
    • 1/2 cup warm milk
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons (0.18 ounce/5g) instant yeast
    • 2/3 cup (3.5 ounces/100g) raisins, currants, or golden raisins (or a mixture)
    • Finely grated zest of 1/2 orange
    • 1/4 heaping teaspoon each of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice
    • 2 teaspoons (0.35 ounce/10g) fine salt
    • 3 1/2 tablespoons (1.8 ounces/50g) superfine sugar
    • 1 medium free-range egg
    • 3 1/2 tablespoons (1.8 ounces/50g) butter
    • 6 tablespoons (1.8 ounces/50g) all-purpose white flour
