Hot Cross Bagels - Izy Hossack - Top With Cinnamon
Woah this Easter break has gone by so FAST. I’ve been in London for just over 2 weeks now aaaand I’m slightly freaked out that exams start basically a month from today. But I’m ignoring that thought for a mo to tell you about my bagel x hot cross bun hybrid!! What we’ve got here is super chewy bagel dough, dotted with mixed dried fruit (which in the UK is basically currants, raisins and candied orange + lemon peel) and of course with the cross piped on top. Now, I’m always confused when I see US recipes for hot cross buns because people pipe a FROSTING cross onto the buns?? Adding frosting makes HCBs untoastable! So, please, for the sake of your enjoyment of HCBs, don’t used frosting on there; pipe a proper cross of water + flour paste + let your buns be toastable!! easy
