Sourdough Hot Cross Buns


As the Easter weekend is approaching I thought I’d repost my recipe for sourdough hot cross buns – yum 🙂

I always like to make hot cross buns at Easter, and this year because I’ve been making sourdough bread, I wanted to make a sourdough version. My regular recipe is from Mrs Beeton’s Book of Cookery and Household Management (my standard cooking reference) and uses regular bread yeast.

I had some trouble finding a sourdough recipe, partly because a lot of sourdough recipes use cup measurements and I prefer weights. And in some I didn’t really understand the timings. I had a bit of a hunt around online, and eventually found two recipes via a twitter search.

I'm a British doctor who married an Aussie, moved to Tasmania, and bought an olive grove. Now making extra virgin olive oil and olive leaf tea. I'd love you to join my adventures in the beautiful setting of Southern Tasmania.

  1. This is very helpful. I was thinking of just winging it with a recipe for sourdough buns since I know these can be difficult to find, so now I’ll just use yours.
