Sunday Brunch: Craisin Hot Cross Buns

I've seen my dad more often than usual lately and he ate these a lot when I was a kid, so this is a shout out to him.


2 tsp Dry Yeast
1/2 cup Soy Milk, heated to near but not boiling
1 tbsp Vegan Margarine, soft
1 Ener-G or other Egg Replacer
4 tsp Dry Sweetener
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
dash Salt
1 1/2 cup Flour, divided
small handful of Craisins
1 tbsp Veg Oil

1/4 cup Icing Sugar
1 tsp Soy Milk
dash Vanilla

Put yeast in a medium mixing bowl and cover with warm soy milk, stirring to dissolve. Add margarine, sugar, salt, egg replacer and stir to combine. Add in 3/4 cup flour and mix; then slowly add 2nd 3/4 cup until it is doughy, but not too dry. Knead and grease, then cover to let rise for 1/2 hour.

Take out and roll into even dough balls (I made 6, but 8 would probably work too). Put them on a greased cookie sheet, separated and covered, let rise for 15 minutes. Bake at 375F until golden brown, cool on a wire rack. While cooling, stir icing ingredients together and make an icing cross on each bun.
