Step 1: Mix
Add all dry ingredients together in a bowl and mix together (flour, cocoa, culture, cinnamon and chocolate buttons).  
Create a "well" in the middle and pour in butter and water. Mix thoroughly until water and dry ingredients create a sticky, soft dough. 

Step 2: Rise 
Cover the mixing bowl with a very damp muslin cloth. Leave for 24 hours to rise in above 20°C heat. 

Step 3: Fold and Shape
After 24 hours use the dough scraper to get all of the dough out of the bowl on to a well-floured surface. 
Fold outside edges inwards and make into a ball shape. Place the ball shape dough onto a floured sheet of baking paper.
Line a bowl with a muslin cloth then place the baking paper and dough inside the bowl. Cover with the edges of muslin cloth.
Leave for a further 2 hours in a warm place for it to rise. 

Step 4: Oven Prep
Preheat oven to 180°C. Whilst waiting for dough to rise, you can start with mixing up the mixture for the cross on the hot cross buns. For this you need 1/2 cup of flour and a bowl of water. Add 1 Tbsp at a time to get the right consistency. In the end it should be a thick, smooth consistency. 

Step 5: Bake 
Once the dough has risen again, evenly make balls of dough and place on a baking paper lined tray. Shape these into squares. Place cross mixture into a piping bag and draw white crosses on each bun. Once done place in preheated oven. Bake for 35 minutes at 180°C. 

Step 6: Butter 
While waiting for the buns to bake, add 100g of Mad Millie Homemade Cultured Butter into a mixing bowl. Add cinnamon, vanilla essence and maple syrup into a bowl and mix in well. 

Step 7: Sever 
Take buns out of the oven after 35 minutes and rest for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes cut in half and serve with cinnamon and maple butter. 

Happy tummy, HAPPY EASTER!
