食谱取自Jane's Corner

  • 100g milk (warm, 100° to 110°)
  • 2 tsps active dry yeast    (我用1tsp)
  • 1 small egg
  • 50g orange juice        (没加)
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1.5 cups flour    (是220g高筋面粉+1g cinnamon powder,自己加的)
  • 2tbsp butter
  • oranges zest from 1 orange     (没加)
  • 1/4 cup candied orange peel (chopped)     (我用dried apricot + dried cranberry)
  • 1/4 cup dried currants

  1. Combined milk and yeast and stand for 5 mins.
  2. Add in egg, sugar, flour and salt in a stand mixer and beat on medium speed.
  3. Gradually add in orange juice and continue mixing until a soft dough is formed.
  4. Add in butter and mix the dough until the dough is soft, smooth and stretchy.
  5. Add in orange zest, peel and currants. Pick up dough and mix with your hands to distribute the fruits.
  6. Return dough to the bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size.
  7. Punch down dough. Divide into 12 portions.
  8. Shape into 12 smooth round buns and arrange into baking pan.
  9. Cover loosely and let rise in a warm place until doubled and puffy, about 40 mins.
  10. Egg wash the buns.
  11. Mixed 2 tbsp flour with some water to make the paste for the cross – add the water 1 tbsp at a time, so you add just enough for a thick paste. Spoon into a piping bag with a small nozzle. Pipe a cross on each bun.
  12. Bake in preheated 170C for 15-18 mins or until golden brown.
  13. Gently heat 2tbsp orange juice with some icing sugar till thick. While the syrup is still warm, brush over the top of the warm buns and leave to cool.


  1. Very lovely buns you have here. Hope you're having a lovely day.
