Dough: Place dough ingredients into the machine in the order as listed. Turn the machine on using "dough only" function. Grease a swiss roll tin.
When the dough cycle has completed remove dough and knead on a well floured surface until elastic and springs back when pressed. Divide into 12 pieces, shape each into a ball and place close together on tray. Cover and leave to rise for 60 minutes.
Tip: Leave to rise longer for a lighter, fluffy bun.
Crosses: Mix all ingredients together until smooth, pipe crosses over risen dough (use a ziploc bag, cut off the corner and use to pipe crosses).
Bake at 200°C for 20-25 minutes until golden.
Glaze: Combine ingredients, microwave for 1 minute and brush over hot buns.
