If you love the flavours and spices of a hot cross bun loaf you should try this delicious bread maker recipe. A slice of this loaf tastes great toasted for breakfast or enjoyed with a nice cup of tea.

Method

  1. In a bowl, mix together the flour, yeast, sugar, salt, cinnamon, grated orange zest, mixed peel, raisins and sultanas.  Mix together well, otherwise the richness of the loaf will prevent the yeast being evenly dispersed and rising nicely.

  2. Add this to the pan in the breadmaker. Mix the beaten egg and water together and add to the bread pan then add in the melted butter.

  3. Set to a programme for a "Medium'' loaf and "Raisin Bake'' on the breadmaker, and turn on.

  4. Meanwhile, mix up the glaze by combining the sugar with the hot water until the sugar is dissolved, set aside with a pastry brush, ready for when the loaf is cooked

  5. To make the topping, mix the flour, sugar and water together, and have ready in a piping bag with a thin nozzle

  6. When the bread is cooked, turn out of the pan, and immediately brush with the glaze thinly. Pipe the topping on in a cross shape, or alternatively in a crisscross pattern, making several small crosses.

  7. To serve, slice and spread with butter.
