Place Lemon Zest in mixing bowl and mill 10 secs / spd 9 untill it resembles a mixed peel consistency - set aside.
Place milk & yeast in mixing bowl & heat 1 min / 37 deg / spd 1.
Sift in flour, salt & spices then add sugar, butter & egg to the mixing bowl & mix 6 sec / spd 7 until combined then knead 2-3 min / / until the mix is elastic.
If dough is sticky you may need to add more flour
Add sultanas, currants and zest & combine 10 sec / / spd 5. Knead again for 2-3min / / .
Tip - the more you work the mix the better the dough consistency.
Transfer dough onto your Thermomat or lightly floured surface and work into a ball. Place ball into a greased bowl, cover with gladwrap and a tea towl and place in a warm spot (some even say the front window of a car) anywhere from 3/4hr - 1 1/2 hr until doubled in size.
Punch down dough to original size and knead lightly until smooth. Cut into 12-16 pieces. Knead pieces into bun shapes and place on a large greased or baking paper lined tray about 1 cm apart. Cover with a tea towel and stand in a warm spot for about 15 mins or until double in size.
Pre-heat oven to 180c.
Place all ingredients into the mixing bowl and mix 30 sec / spd 4.
Pour into a sandwich bag, snip the corner off and pipe crosses on the buns.
Place crossed buns in oven for about 20 mins or until cooked.
(I’ve had to reduce the temp to 160c and cook for 20-30mins due to my silly oven!!)
With about 2 mins of bun cooking time to go - in your clean TM mixing bowl add water and sugar and cook 2 min / 100c / spd 4.
Using a brush, glaze your buns with the syrup as soon as they come out of the oven.
If you don't have Bakers Flour you can sub with the equivalent of quality Plain Flour and 2 tsp Bread Improver.
Omit or reduce lemon zest to taste as needed.
DAIRY FREE OPTION - subs Butter with Coconut Oil or Olive Oil and Moo Milk with Almond Milk.
