Hot Cross Buns (bread machine )

Hot Cross Buns

For 1 lb bread machine:
1/2 cup milk
1 1/4 eggs
2 1/2 tbsp sugar
1/3 tsp salt
2/3 tsp cinnamon
2 cups flour
1 tsp yeast
1/2 cup raisins

For 2 lb bread machine:
1 cup milk
2 1/2 eggs
1/4 cup butter
5 tbsp sugar
2/3 tsp salt
1 1/3 tsp cinnamon
4 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp yeast
1 cup raisins

Place ingredients in bread machine in order manufacturer suggests. Mix using bread machine dough cycle.

About 5 minutes prior to the end of the dough cycle add raisins (or at 1st beep, if your machine does that), or knead them in by hand at the completion of the dough cycle. After a short kneading, let the dough rest for 10 minutes.

Cut dough into the desired number of pieces (8 for a small, 16 for large), shape each one into a ball and place in a greased baking dish. Cover and let rise about 35
minutes or until double in bulk.

Brush with a mixture of egg yolk and 2 Tbsp water. Bake at 350-degrees for 20-25 minutes.

After buns are completely cooled, drizzle in the shape of a cross a mixture of:
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp milk
