Bakers Delight - my baking experience with baking hot cross buns

I love buying my bread from Bakers Delight. Its so fresh, there is a great variety and best of all it tastes great.

I was invited to cover a baking event at Bakers Delight, how exciting! I got to experience first hand what its like to bake from scratch fresh hot cross buns. The choc chip flavour. Yummy!!
Let me show you how its done! First of all I put on the uniform provided so I was a true Bakers Delight baker. ( well not really but I pretended!)
Daniel the franchisee of the store is a fantastic baker with over seventeen years experience. He talked me through the process whilst showing me how its all done. First the big mixing bowl where the dough and choc chips were mixed together.

Its important that the right amount of ingredients go in and that the temperature is checked. Once its right the dough is ready. Now its time to place the dough on a tray and have it cut into the right round hot cross bun pieces. Once we did that we placed the tray with the dough on it, into the cutting machine.

This machine cuts the hot cross buns in the perfect round shape.

Now its time for the hot cross buns to be lined up on the baking try and have their chocolate crosses placed on them. Once this was done into the big oven they went for twenty minutes.

As they were coming out of the oven they smelt delicious. Once they came out we glazed them and then they were ready to eat. Yummy!!

My kids enjoyed eating the hot cross buns. My kids couldn't believe I baked them - well actually Daniel the real Bakers Delight baker did all of the cooking, but I did help. Here is the video if you would like to see how it was all done.

Thanks so much to Bakers Delight for giving me a insight and first hand experience into how the most delicious hot cross buns are made.

Make sure you pick up some yummy hot cross buns the next time your at Bakers Delight. You will love them!
