Jenny is sharing a recipe for Breadmaker Vegan Hot Crossed Buns. They look so yummy!
I had been using a bread maker to make them them since we got to the US but the usual recipe uses eggs, butter and milk. A search of Internet, found several vegan versions that didn't seem to fit with any thing I had learned (the hard way) about 'bread science'. After some experimenting this is the recipe that worked for me...everyone loves them and they are no different to the regular recipe
4 c bread flour (I used King Arthur Unbleached white bread flour)
1 Tbs flax seeds
1 tsp mixed spice
1 tsp cinnamon
2-4 Tbs Sugar (depending on the sweetness preferred)
2 Tbs Vegan Margarine (I used smart balance light)
1/2 c raisins
7g packet active yeast (I used Hogson mills)
1/2 c Almond milk, warm
1/2 c water, warm
1/4 c warm water and 1/4tsp of sugar for proofing yeast
