Orange Hot Cross Buns (Tangzhong Method) 香橙十字面包 (汤种)



明天就是复活节了!为了紀念主耶穌為世人死在十字架上,並勝過死亡而復活。
我选择了这款有“十字”记号的面包来庆祝这个充满意义的日子!
这是改编版的香橙十字面包,用橙皮屑取代传统的香料粉,口感清香。
加了汤种的面包更柔软。第一次的“复活十字面包”,我感到满意!
愿主爱常伴,祝福大家复活节快乐! 没有庆祝的朋友,周末愉快!

Happy Easter to everyone! To those that don't celebrate Easter, Happy Weekend!
Orange hot cross bun is a bit different from traditional hot cross bun which I use the orange zest to replace mixed spices. I feel more comfortable with the orange flavour and soft-pillowy texture from the tangzhong method. 
I was satisfied with my first attempt "Easter cross buns"result :)
