      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

    Choc Hazelnut Hot Cross Buns
  1. Place vanilla bean, cloves, nutmeg & cinnamon into the TM bowl & chop for 1 min speed 10. (If it is not all chopped up you may need to add a tablespoon of the flour & chop it again).

    Add milk and yeast into mixing bowl with the spices and heat 1 min/37deg/speed1.

    Add flour, salt, butter, egg & sugar and mix 6 sec/speed 7 then knead 2-3 min.

    Add hazelnuts & chocolate chips and combine 10-15 sec/reverse/speed 5.

    Allow to rest in warm place covered with tea towel for 30-40 minutes then divide into 12 buns.

    Option here is to flatten each piece of dough & put a heaped teaspoon full of the cooled chocolate hazelnut spread, closing the dough over then turn upside down so the join is on the bottom.

    Place buns onto 2 large pieces of baking paper in the Varoma dish. (6 on the top tray & 6 on the bottom). Allow to rise in a warm spot.

    Fill TM bowl with 500ml water. Place varoma with buns on top of TM bowl & cook 15minutes/Varoma/speed 2.

    Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.

    When your buns have finished steaming, gently move them on to an oven tray still on their baking paper & bake for 10- 15 mins until golden brown. Brush with some honey to glaze them.

    Place chocolate hazelnut spread into piping bag & pipe crosses over slightly cooled buns. 



If you don't want to use the chocolate hazelnut spread you could put a ferrero rocher choclate inside each bun or a lindt ball.

If you are making your chocolate hazelnut spread before starting this recipe you don't need to clean the bowl before starting the recipe.

  • Not hot cross bun consistency

    Not hot cross bun consistency at all. More like rock cakes. They taste delicious but not what I was wanting them to be like. Also it doesn't state when t add the sugar. I won't be making this again unless I want rock cakes.

    These hot cross buns are delicious. I will add a bit more of the spices next time. I baked them in the oven I did not steam them first.  Thanks for the recipe.

    Hi, the instructions do not state when to put the sugar in. Not a bad recipe but can be easily dried out.
