R140,00

In stock

Adapted from Sally-Ann’s famous Big, Big Banting Loaf, our Hot Cross Bun Mix is a banting-friendly pre-mix that allows you to bake and enjoy the ‘traditional taste’ of Easter, with less than 1g net carbs per bun. This mix is deliciously spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and mixed spice, and is sweetened using our Sally-Ann Creed® Keto Sweet. Topped with a Keto Sweet glaze, these buns will become a household favourite. To uphold the Easter tradition and add extra flavour, we recommend adding  raisins and mixed dried fruit peel.

These soft, dense buns can be served fresh from the oven, smothered in butter or ghee, or enjoyed a day or two later, as the buns keep well in the refrigerator. You can even pre-cook and freeze them in preparation for Easter or that upcoming Sunday tea!

Instructions for use: 
What you will need 
1 bag Sally-Ann Creed® Hot Cross Bun Mix 
10g active dry yeast 
¾ cup warm water 
6 TBSP (90g) double cream greek yogurt 
4 eggs (room temperature) 
2 TBSP apple cider vinegar 
6 TBSP (90g) salted butter 

Optional:
½ cup raisins 
½ cup mixed dried fruit peel 

Glaze: 
¼ cup keto sweet (blend to resemble fine powder) 
¼ cup water
-Combine to make a runny glaze

Flour paste:
75g flour of choice
5 TBSP water
-Combine adding water 1 TBSP at a time to make a thick paste

Method:
1. In a large mixing bowl combine greek yogurt, inulin, and warm water together. Then mix in active dry yeast and cover with a dishcloth. Set aside to allow for the yeast to activate. 
Note: This process takes about 5-10 minutes. The yeast mixture should start bubbling. Once many bubbles form, this means that the yeast has been activated and is ready for use.
2. Add the eggs and apple cider vinegar to the yeast mixture, and whisk until combined for approximately 1 minute.
3. Empty xanthan gum and baking powder into the Hot Cross Bun Mix pouch.
4. Add the banting hot cross bun mixture slowly, in three parts, to the wet ingredients, alternating with the softened butter.
5. Once combined, it should resemble a sticky dough. Mix in the raisins and dried fruit peel (optional).
6. With slightly wet hands, shape dough into 12 buns (approx. 4cm in height) and place on baking paper or a greased oven tray. Space the buns out, as they should double in size.
7. Cover with a dishcloth and allow to rise for 1½ – 3 hours 
Note: Allowing the dough to rise is an important step to ensure the buns are soft.
8. Once the buns have doubled in size. Bake them in a preheated oven at 190°C for 10 minutes. 
Optional step: Make the flour paste . Remove the buns from the oven and pipe a cross on top of each bun.
9. Then turn the heat of the oven down to 170°C and cook the buns for a further 35-45 minutes.
10. Once fully baked, while still hot, glaze the buns with keto sweet icing and allow to cool fully.
11. Serve and enjoy!
