Do you know the nursery rhyme Hot Cross Buns? Listen to it here. I made a whole wheat version today, based on this recipe from Joy of Baking. I used a ratio of 2/3 whole wheat bread flour to 1/3 white flour. The texture and taste are great.
I kneaded in the raisins and orange peel, then allowed the dough to rise. Then I shaped into balls and brushed with an egg wash. After another rise, I sliced crosses into a few of them and baked. The crosses didn't show that well, but the rolls are still lovely. (Other methods to get the cross include using dough or powdered sugar.)
Traditionally, these are served on Good Friday. I didn't know any better, so I made them for tomorrow. We'll see how many are left by then!
