Buttery Garlic and Cheese Baked Hot Cross Buns

Try these soft hot cross buns made from scratch. I have decided to go savoury this year and stuffed them with cheese and baked with garlic butter and herbs.

I made these buns using Magimix Cook Expert and the original recipe you can find here.

This recipe contains eggs and dairy.

Recipe

Prep Time: 1 hr 30 mins
Cook Time: 25 mins
Yields: 10

Ingredients

    For the Buns:
  • 500 g strong white bread flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 7 g quick yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 50 g unsalted butter, cut into cubes, plus extra for greasing
  • 200 ml tepid milk
  • 2 medium sized eggs
  • For the Topping:
  • 3 tablespoons plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • For the Filling:
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • 85 g melted butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • fresh parsley, chopped, for garnishing

Method

  1. In a bowl, lightly beat the eggs add the tepid milk and place to one side. Fit the dough blade to the main bowl of your Magimix and pour in the strong white bread flour, salt, yeast, sugar, and butter. Remove the small feed tubes from the lid, so that air gets into the mixture and you can pour further ingredients during the process.
  2. In a bowl, lightly beat the eggs add the tepid milk and place to one side. Fit the dough blade to the main bowl of your Magimix and pour in the strong white bread flour, salt, yeast, sugar, and butter. Remove the small feed tubes from the lid, so that air gets into the mixture and you can pour further ingredients during the process.
  3. Press auto, allowing your Magimix to knead the dough. After approx. 5 seconds, slowly add in the egg and milk mixture through the feed tube, whilst your Magimix continues to knead the mixture. After approx. 90 seconds, once the dough is soft and pliable, press stop. Scrape down any residue of flour from the sides of the bowl. Allow the mixture to rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead until a soft dough forms. Cut into 6 or 10 equal pieces and roll each one into a ball. Arrange them on a greased baking tray and loosely cover with cling film until risen, about 45-60 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 220°C. Meanwhile for the topping, mix the plain flour and 2tbsp of cold water to a smooth paste. Once the buns have risen, spoon the mixture into a piping bag and pipe a cross onto each bun. Transfer the buns to the oven and bake in the middle for 12-15 minutes or until golden-brown. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  6. Once the buns are cool cut a dip pattern into each bun and stuff it with cheese. In a small bowl combine melted butter with garlic and seasonings. Brush each bun with the butter mixture on the inside and outside as well. Sprinkle with more cheese on top and pop them back in the oven for 10 mins at 180°C until golden brown and the cheese has melted. Serve warm garnished with fresh parsley. Enjoy!
