Google+ Cave Food Kitchen: Hot Cross Buns

Hot Cross Buns

Easter is on it's way, and with it come lots of traditions, most of them revolve around food of course. One of those foods are hot cross buns, usually eaten on Good Friday.
As an experiment, I wanted to try and make a gluten free version of them. Not necessarily paleo, since psyllium husk is not considered really paleo by many, (you decide) but gluten free for sure!

1/2 cup of coconut flour, sifted
4 eggs, whisked
5 tbsp psyllium husk 
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp all spice
2 tbsp maple syrup
1/4 cup raisins

1 cup of boiling water

Mix all the ingredients well together, and add the boiling water at the very last minute. Make hockey puck sized portions and place them on a cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated oven on 170C for about 45 mins.

As you can see, I haven't put the traditional cross on the top, but you can of course make some type of glaze. These days people also make them with chocolate chips or other types of sweet additions.
