  • Rub Nuttlex through the dry mix until the mix is a fine crumb.
  • Whisk together milk, golden sugar and vanilla essence in a separate bowl.
  • In another bowl whisk Orgran No Egg mixture.
  • Place liquid mixtures into bowl with dry ingredients.
  • Mix well to form a smooth and consistent doughy batter.
  • Spoon the batter into a greased muffin tin (smooth tops with damp fingers if you wish to shape them).
  • Cover with a clean tea towel and leave in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, whisk plain four and sugar with water until smooth.
  • Spoon into a zip-lock back and cut off a corner.
  • Squeeze out flour mixture to create the crosses.
  • Bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • In a small pan, boil golden syrup and water for five minutes.
  • Brush glaze over the buns while hot.
  • Cool on a wire rack.

  • Reheat to eat. Best method is 1 minute in the microwave.
