Enjoy fresh from the oven and spread with butter. Make these any time of year and simply leave off the pastry cross.

Method

  1. Put the flour, sugar, spice, yeast and salt into a bowl.

  2. Stir in the milk, butter and egg to form a soft dough.

  3. Mix in the dried fruits of your choice along with the zest of the orange.

  4. Turn onto a floured surface and knead for 10 minutes.

  5. Place in a clean bowl and cover with a clean tea towel and leave to prove. The dough will double in size, this can take up to an hour.

  6. Preheat the oven to 200°C (180°C fan, gas mark 6). Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces and shape then place on a lightly floured baking tray.

  7. Brush with egg wash and finish the buns with a cross made from the shortcrust pastry.

  8. Glaze once more and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden.
