      Recipe is created for
      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

  1. Place all dough ingredients into mixing bowl

    Mix 30 seconds/ speed 3

    8 Minutes Dough mode (ensure you stay close to your machine when neading)

    Wrap in a thermomat (Nice and tight) for 15-20 minutes. You should be able to see it rising at a good rate.

    Knock dough back down and then weigh out 12 portions at approx 80g each.

    Roll into balls - using the top of a teaspoon create a hole into each ball and place 1 tsp of Nutella into each and then close up by pinching it back together. Place pinched hole side down on your lined baking tray. (They will rise better if they are close to each other- around about 3-4cm apart) as they rise they should nearly be touching each other and then once baked will be connected.

    Leave in a nice warm spot to proove for about 20 minutes


  2. Piping
  3. Place ingredients into mixing bowl and mix for 40 seconds/ speed 3

    If to watery add a little more flour to get the right consistency.

    Place mixture into piping bag (Ive also use an old sauce bottle or zip lock bag with corner but out- they both work well)

    Pipe a cross onto each bun

    Place into oven 180 degrees for 20-25 minutes

  4. Glaze
  5. Just befroe buns are due to come out of oven make glaze


    Place suagr and water into clean mixing bowl.

    heat 3 minutes/ varoma./ speed 1 (MC removed)

    Once buns cooked immediately coat with Glaze using a pastry brush

    At a special request from my son "can you please search for Nutella hot cross buns" yours was one of the first I found. I'm not much of a baker but your instructions were clear and they turned out perfectly. Thank you.
