Step 1

Dissolve yeast in the tepid water. Sift together Bakels Gluten Free Health Bread Mix and spices and place in a large mixing bowl.

Cut in butter until a fine crumb forms. Add salt, sugar, eggs, sultanas and the yeast mixture and using an electric beater fitted with dough hooks, mix on medium speed for 5 minutes.

Using a tablespoon, place generous round mounds on a greased baking tray. Let stand in a warm moist place for 45-50 minutes.

Bake at 200°C for approximately 10-12 minutes or until done.
Brush with the warm sugary water while still warm.

Once cooled, mix the cross mix ingredients together and pipe a cross over each bun.
