Chocolate Hot Cross Buns<\/strong><\/em><\/p>\n

Ingredients<\/strong><\/p>\n

    \n
  1. 1 cup butter<\/li>\n
  2. 1 cup sugar<\/li>\n
  3. 2 tsp salt<\/li>\n
  4. 4 tbsp cocoa powder (we used local, sun eaters)<\/li>\n
  5. 3 eggs<\/li>\n
  6. 6 cups flour<\/li>\n
  7. 6 tbsp cornstarch<\/li>\n
  8. 4 tsp yeast<\/li>\n
  9. 1 1\/2 cups milk<\/li>\n
  10. 6 tsp cocoa powder<\/li>\n
  11. 1\/4 cup nibs<\/li>\n
  12. 1\/4 cup chopped chocolate (we used 70% local dark)<\/li>\n<\/ol>\n

    Method<\/strong><\/p>\n

      \n
    1. Cream butter and sugar until butter is light in colour and then beat eggs in one at a time.<\/li>\n
    2. Add in cocoa powder and salt and mix until combined.<\/li>\n
    3. Measure all dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix (add yeast away from salt or mix salt into dry ingredients first before adding yeast since salt will kill the yeast)<\/li>\n
    4. Add dry and wet ingredients into the creamed butter mixture, starting with the flour and alternating between the two.<\/li>\n
    5. The mixture will form a soft dough that is still a little sticky, cover the dough and leave to proof until it has doubled in size.<\/li>\n
    6. When it has doubled add in the nibs and chocolate (we chose these mix in but you can use whatever you would like!)<\/li>\n
    7. Leave the dough to proof again for 15 minutes before using.<\/li>\n
    8. Portion the dough into 100g pieces and roll into balls. place them in a greased pan and cover them, allowing them to proof until almost doubled.<\/li>\n
    9. Brush with egg wash or milk wash and bake at 400 degrees F for about 15-20 minutes.<\/li>\n
    10. remove from the heat and allow to cool before filling etc.<\/li>\n<\/ol>\n

      8. one orange zested or some orange peels<\/li>\n

        Method<\/strong><\/p>\n

          \n
        1. Place milk in a pot to boil with orange, mint and half the sugar (watch this carefully since it can easily over boil)<\/li>\n
        2. In a separate bowl combine eggs, sugar, cornstarch, whisk together until it forms a smooth paste.<\/li>\n
        3. When the milk reaches a boil, slowly temper into the egg mixture. Add the mixture back to the pot and return it to the stove on very low heat<\/li>\n
        4. Stir the mixture constantly until thickened.<\/li>\n
        5. add in vanilla and butter.<\/li>\n
        6. Transfer to a bowl and cover with cling film, ensure the film is touching the pastry cream on all exposed areas to prevent the cream from forming a skin.<\/li>\n
