A Bun for Everyone – Hot Cross Buns, the Thermomix® Way

The supermarkets have been stocking them since a few weeks after Christmas, so why wait until Easter to start enjoying homemade hot cross buns made your way?

Our Recipe Development Team have been hard at work creating new variations and flavour combinations on this baked classic. We’ve even got a vegan option thanks to pastry chef, Christy Tania. 

We’re totally not joking when we say there’s a bun for everyone!  

How do you like yours? 

Thanks to Thermomix® Dough Mode and super simple step-by-step Thermomix® recipes on our recipe platform Cookidoo®, we can all make bakery-quality hot cross buns at home.  

So, the only question left is: How do you like yours? 

You’ll find all the inspiration you need for traditional, and less traditional hot Cross Buns, in our new collection on Cookidoo®:  

Another new kitchen skill for you… 

While Thermomix® will look after the kneading for you with Dough mode, there is a bit of a knack to piping perfect crosses on your hot cross buns. So, Deborah from our Recipe Development Team prepped a video for you. Take a look at it here and follow along to perfect your piping technique.  

More buck for your bun 

Use leftover hot cross buns in a bread and butter pudding for an indulgent sweet brekkie or dessert. Simply use the Bread and butter pudding recipe on Cookidoo®  which most takes your fancy, and swap out the bread with hot cross buns. Yum!  

Try our Mocha eggnog Easter bake on Cookidoo® or Blog for something a little bit spesh.
