Sweet Buns (with icing to make it Hot Cross Buns)

Ive posted another bun recipe before!!!
But after making this, I reverted the other recipe to draft.
This is toooooo good, believe me, very similar to the kerala bakery buns.
And I love Ree Drummond, she is my favourite, favourite , Favourite baking godess.
Thanks Pioneer Woman, I love you!!!!!!

For the Bun:
Milk: 2 cups
Vegetable Oil: 1/2 cup
Sugar: 1/2 cup
Yeast: 2 1/4 tsp
Maida/All purpose Flour: 4 cups + 1/2 cup additional flour
Baking Powder: 1 heaped tsp
Salt: 2 tsp
Sugar: 1/4 cup
Cinnamon: 1 tsp
Raisins: 1/2 cup

In a saucepan, combine the 2 cups milk, oil and half cup of sugar. heat until very warm but not too hot.
Take off stove and let it cool. Not too cold, but warm!!!!
Mix in the yeast and 4 cups of flour and combine. Yes, you got a very sticky mixture.... I know it!!!!
Cover with a towel and keep aside for an hour.
Now in another bowl, mix the half cup flour, baking powder and salt.
mix the 1/4 cup sugar with cinnamon.
Flour surface with the flour baking powder mix u just made.
Take the dough and flatten it. On that sprinkle a little of the sugar cinnamon mixture. Also a little of the raisins.
Then fold the dough and flatten again so that all the cinnamon mixture and raisins went inside and u cant see it.
Again flatten the dough and sprinkle the cinnamon mix and raisins. Fold the dough again.
Flatten the dough again, repeat the sprinkling of cinnamon mix and raisins. Continue doing till youve used up all the raisins. You might have left over cinnamom mix...thats fine, You can store it away.
Take golf sized balls from the dough and quickly roll into a ball and tuck the edges under each ball so that the top looks smooth.
Place on greased tins.
Cover and keep aside for 30 - 60 minutes. it will rise.
Preheat oven 180C

For the Glazed top of bun
Egg white: 1
Milk: 1 tbsp
Mix egg white with a little milk.
Brush onto each roll. Bake for 20 minutes (maybe less or more depending on your oven) till the top of the buns are golden brown.
Remove from pan and let it cool.


Egg white: 1
Powdered  sugar
Milk: a little

Mix the egg white with enough powdered sugar that will make the icing very thick. sprinkle milk to reach a piping consistency.
Add icing to a small Ziploc bag and snip the corner. Make icing crosses on each roll, making sure they're completely cooled first.

Recipe got from The Pioneer Woman :)
