香橙十字面包 (Orange Hot Cross Bun)


很快的复活节就在眼前。
今天也是教会对“逾越节”的纪念。即耶稣受难前与门徒们共进最后晚餐的节日。
教会认为耶穌是在星期五(安息日前一天)被杀害的。
所以“逾越节”纪念,又称耶穌受难纪念一定是在星期五举行。
而耶穌是在周日(上帝創造天地的第一日)复活。
所以复活节和逾越节是同一星期舉行。
这几天对所有教徒而言都是重要的节日。
通常都多做些刻苦,守斋,祈祷来准备生心灵;
期盼渡过一个更有意义的复活节庆典。
一般上说到逾越节都会记起无酵饼;
原本我也想做个无酵饼来纪念这一天,但我实在心有余而力不足,
也只好放弃,直接跳过逾越节,而进入复活节了。
复活节少不了复活十字面包;
每年我都不会错过为家人和朋友准备这个。
为了支持这个月的香橙主题,我就把传统式的十字面包改了改,
做了香橙口味的十字复活排包。
清新的口味还蛮不错的。
在这里我也祝福大家有个愉快的复活节。
愿主的大爱常与我们大家同在;祝福我们,保护我们。


Ingredients:
  • 100g milk (warm, 100° to 110°)
  • 2 tsps active dry yeast
  • 1 small egg
  • 50g orange juice
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 2tbsp butter
  • oranges zest from 1 orange
  • 1/4 cup candied orange peel (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup dried currants

Method:
  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.
