Cross buns is a typical breakfast served on Sundays with butter, jams, and other festive appetizers.

With time, these buns started to be made with chocolate, different fillings and tastes, as well as Ukrainian paska bread. 


I thought that if you have no possibility to bake paska bread, there is an easy and fast way to bake English cross buns instead. They are extremely delicious, the dough contains lots of spices, orange zest, and rum-soaked raisins. It is just a perfect dish for breakfast. 

Ingredients for the dough

Method of cooking

Soak the raisins in dark rum the day before making the buns.

In a saucepan, heat the milk until it gets barely warm. Add yeast and dissolve it in milk.

Sift flour with spices into the mix and gradually knead the dough.

At the end, add raisins soaked in rum, you can add them with liquid and knead the dough.

Cover the dough with a towel and put it in a warm place for 1 hour.

Put the dough on the work surface and divide it into 12 equal parts.

Form buns and place them on a baking tray lined with baking parchment, not far from each other. Cover with a towel and let them rise for 30 minutes.

Grease the buns with a mixture of an egg yolk and milk.

Cool the buns and apply a cross pattern with lemon glaze.
