Alternative Hot Cross Buns
I am aware that their is a lot of threads regarding hot cross buns but as the title suggest I am looking for an alternative to the ordinary hot cross bun due to health reasons.
* No modern Wheat - I was thinking maybe 100% Khorasan / Kamut flour as this will probably give the lightest result without using wheat??
* Sourdough rather then bakers yeast as it is better for my digestion and will add to the flavour.
* Unfortunately Dairy Free - So no butter or milk as most recipes require, can I emit these from the recipe or is there an alternative? (I may have a little butter when I taste the final product depending how i feel)
* Little or no sugar - not really a sweet tooth anyway, but I could substitute coconut palm sugar which would give a lovely flavour (similar to brown sugar but much more complex.)
Eggs are fine!
I will add lot of spices (such as cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg...) preferably fresh but ground if unavailable.
Has anyone tried something similar before or know of any good recipes similar to this?
Any hint or tips welcome - I have never made hot cross buns and usually just stick with my weekly spelt and grain sourdough loaf.
