Process

Step 1

Place yeast in a large bowl and add the milk, whisk together and let sit for 10 minutes or until mixture is frothy.

Step 5

About halfway into the kneading process, add the chocolate chips so they are evenly incorporated into the dough.

Step 6

Lightly oil your mixing bowl then place the dough back into it and cover with a clean tea towel. Let rest for one hour or until the dough has doubled in size.

Step 7

Tear off a small amount of the dough, about the size of a small apple and gently shape into a round ball.

Step 11

To make the piping mixture, combine the flour, cinnamon, sugar and water in a small bowl and whisk until you have a thick paste, add a little more flour or water as needed.

Step 12

Spoon mixture into a small plastic bag, snip off the bottom and slowly pipe a cross on top of the buns.

Step 14

Towards the end of your cooking time, combine glaze ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat, cook until sugar has dissolved and you have a thick syrup.

Step 15

As soon as the buns come out of the oven, brush the glaze generously over the top of each bun. Let cool a little then serve as is or with a smear of butter and a little jam.
