  • Stir to dissolve then set aside for 10-15 minutes until you see the yeast activating and bubbling.
  • Meanwhile, combine all the dry ingredients, except 1/4 cup extra flour, into a bowl.
  • Add the eggs, Nutlex or replacement and the milk mixture and mix.
  • Knead with your hands or in a mixer for about 4 minutes.
  • Cover with a damp cloth and sit somewhere warm for approx. 40 mins or until risen and doubled in size.
  • Gently knock back and then place the dough onto a floured bench and divide into 9 equal pieces. Roll into balls and place onto a lined baking tray, 2cm apart. Cover the tray with a damp cloth and leave somewhere warm to rise again and double in size.
  • Preheat oven to 170C.
  • Meanwhile, mix the reserved 1/4 cup of flour with 1 tbsp of sugar, 1/4 tsp mixed spice and 2 tbsp water to form a thick paste. Spoon this into a small piping bag and once the buns have risen, pipe across the rows to make crosses on each.
  • Bake for approx. 30 minutes until lightly coloured and spring when pressed.
  • While the buns are baking, reduce the orange juice and sugar by half in a small pot. Once you remove the buns from the oven. generously brush the orange syrup all over the buns so it soaks in.
  • Cool Slightly and enjoy. Store in an airtight container at room temp.
