Hot Cross Buns
What you'll need
 90 ml Coconut milk (or free-range milk if not Paleo)
 ½ Packet Instant yeast
 1 ¼ cups Health Riot Cassava flour
 2 tbsp Raw honey
 1 tsp Xanthan gum
 ½ tsp Salt
 3 tsp Cinnamon
 ½ tsp Baking powder
 2 Large Free-range Eggs
 1 tbsp Olive oil
 ½ tsp Apple cider vinegar
 ½ Rapidly boiling Water
 1 cup Raisins
Instructions:
1

Warm milk on stove top over low heat, remove when lukewarm, pour into a small container, add yeast and stir. Set aside.

2

In a mixing bowl, sift all your dry ingredients and stir to incorporate.

3

Next, add the olive oil, apple cider vinegar and honey. Finely mix this into the dough.

4

Next, add the rapidly boiling water and thoroughly until mixture is like fine crumbs, (about 2 minutes.)

5

Add yeast mixture and stir for another 2 minutes, until very well combined.

6

Lastly, add the eggs and beat well for 4 minutes – this will become a very sticky batter.

7

Add the raisins and mix carefully.

8

Prepare a baking tray with wax paper greased with olive oil.

9

Get a little extra Health Riot Cassava flour on your hands and carefully place a bread roll sized amount of dough in your hand. Then put a small amount of additional flour on top of the dough. Carefully and gently roll into a bun shape and place on the wax paper. This should make 6 buns.

10

Allow to rest for 30 minutes and then place in a preheated oven of 160 degrees Celsius for 25–30 minutes. Remove when golden and a skewer comes out clean.
