• 300ml full fat milk
  • 50g butter
  • 500g strong bread flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 7g or 2tsp of yeast
  • 75g sultanas 
  • 1 peeled cut apple
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 75g plain flour

Put the milk and butter into a pan and melt over a low heat. Mix the flour, salt, sugar and yeast together in a mixing bowl and pour in the melted butter and milk mixture. 

Mix, by hand or in a food mixer until the mixture becomes a sticky dough. Knead for approximately 5 minutes until elastic, then leave for 1 hour in a bowl. Knock back and leave for 1 further hour, then separate out the mixture into 15 pieces (depending on size) and roll into a ball shape. 

Place on a baking tray - spaced out. To make the crosses, mix 75g of flour with water until a thick paste. Place in a piping bag and pipe cross shapes onto the buns. 

Cook in the oven at gas mark 6 - 7 or 180 - 190 degrees for 10 - 15 minutes. When cooked, to test, tap the bottom of each bun. It should sound hollow.
