What are the notes for hot cross buns?
Hot Cross Buns is a song we all come across in our childhood. You’ve probably played it on the recorder in the 3rd grade. What makes it a great starter melody for kids to learn on the piano is that it only has three notes: C, D and E. It’s as easy as that.
How long do you put hot cross buns in the oven for?
Make the piping by sifting the flour into a bowl and adding enough water to make a paste. Pipe the crosses onto the buns using a piping bag or a glad bag with the end snipped off. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until the buns sound hollow when tapped.
Why are my hot cross buns hard?
Gluten is the protein in the flour that stretches as you knead it, and this provides structure to the buns. If the gluten is not worked sufficiently the buns can be hard. However fat (from the butter and egg yolk) and sugar can both retard gluten development so sometimes a little extra kneading is required.

Once it comes out of the microwave (I usually give it 20 to 25 seconds), sit a pat of butter in the centre and let it soften for a couple of seconds before spreading. If you’re feeling particularly daring, slathering your bun with butter before popping it in the microwave also produces excellent results.
