Vegan spicy fruit buns (hot cross buns)
We don't celebrate easter, but still like the spicy fruit buns. We use the white paste to make other shapes on top! This is my adaptation of the UK Vegetarian society 'vegan friendly' recipe. It could be tweaked to be less calories by using less sugar, fruit (I like mine very fruity) and margerine, and leaving the white markings off. You can substitute up to 1/3 of the strong bread flour with wholemeal strong bread flour without ill-effects - more than this and the buns are too heavy.
One bun plus some fruit and a soy latte makes a great breakfast!Submitted by: PHRASER
