 Ingredients List

  • 4 1/2 c All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/3 c Granulated Sugar
  • 2 tb Quick Rise Instant Yeast
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 2 ts Cinnamon
  • 1/2 ts Grated Nutmeg
  • 2 c Warm Water
  • 1/4 c Melted Butter
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • 1 c Raisins or part currants
  • 1/2 c Mixed Candied Peel
  • 1 1/2 c Icing Sugar
  • 2 tb Milk


In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, yeast, lemon rind, salt
cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir in warm water and butter, then beaten eggs. Using
a wooden spoon, vigorously stir dough until smooth and elastic. Stir in
raisins and candied peel. Scrape down sides of bowl, cover with a clean dry
towel and stand for 10 minutes. Grease 24 medium to large-sized muffin cups
and spoon in batter no more than 2/3 full. Brush tops with melted
butter. Cover and let rise in a warm place until almost double, about 20 -
30 minutes. Bake in an oven preheated to 375 degrees for about 20 minutes
or until tops are browned. Let cool on wire racks until warm, about 10 - 15
minutes. Combine icing sugar with milk until smooth; place in a piping bag
or spoon on top of buns to make crosses. Makes 24 buns. From The Gazette,
