I was asked to come up with a recipe for Hot Cross Buns, using Stork of course, with a modern twist and complete the following sentence:
‘My Secret to better Easter Baking with Stork is giving Hot Cross Buns a modern twist by…’, well here goes–
My Secret to better Easter Baking with Stork is giving Hot Cross Buns a modern twist by flavouring them with a very on-trend cocktail – the Cosmopolitan. The cranberry, lime and orange in a Cosmopolitan are flavours that would work so well in the bun – even without any alcohol!
I substituted some of the mixed fruit for dried cranberries, added orange juice to the dough and finally glazed the buns with lime-flavoured icing. The result was a hot cross bun, which still retained the familiar traditional elements, but added a new dimension of flavour as well.
