Salted Almond Chocolate Hot Cross Buns - Cook & Nelson

Salted Almond Chocolate Hot Cross Buns

This recipe celebrates all there is to love about Easter - Chocolate and Hot Cross Buns! And the combination of delicious Tony’s Chocolonely Salted Almond chocolate and Ironclad Pan toasted almonds in lots of lovely butter sets these Hot Cross Buns apart from any you’ve ever tasted. Deliciously spiced and sweet, dripping with chocolate and with the additional crunch of rock salt, they’ll have your whānau leaping out of bed as soon as they smell them cooking and begging you to make more. And the best thing about Tony’s Chocolonely chocolate? There’s not a mouthful of child slavery in any bite. We love this. Keep Easter clean by checking the chocolate you are eating is sustainably and kindly produced. It matters. From the Ironclad Pan team. Happy Easter! INGREDIENTS:YEAST SPONGE ¼ c warm milk 1 T yeast. 1 T flour 1 t brown sugar THE SALTED ALMONDS 1 c almonds, roughly chopped 75 g soft butter ½ t salt flakes THE DOUGH 2 1/2 c white flour 2 T Mixed spice 1 T cinnamon powder ¼ c cacao or cocoa powder, sifted ¼ c brown sugar ½ c glazed mixed peel, roughly chopped ¾ c warm milk 1 egg 1 t vanilla essence 170 g salted almond Tony’s chocolate, roughly chopped. Extra cacao or cocoa powder to dust. PAN PREPARATION 1 T butter 1 t salt flakes 1 t cocoa or cacao powder. PASTE ½ c water ½ c flour Salt flakes to sprinkle on top GLAZE 1 egg yolk – before the bake 2 T maple syrup – after the bake METHOD: To make the yeast sponge. In a small bowl, sprinkle yeast over the milk, flour and brown sugar, stir gently and leave for 10 minutes in a warm place, till fluffy and risen. In your Lil’ Legacy Pan melt the butter and sauté the chopped almonds and salt over a low heat for 3 minutes or until just starting to brown. The almonds will continue to cook in the pan after you have removed them from the heat. Set aside to cool. Mix all dry ingredients together then add chopped citrus peel and buttery toasted almonds and mix well. Make a well in the centre of these ingredients and add half the warm milk, the egg and vanilla essence. Whisk lightly to combine ingredients. Add the yeast sponge and the remaining milk and use a wooden spoon to combine the dry and wet ingredients. Turn the mix onto the benchtop liberally dusted with cocoa or cacao powder. The dough should be a little bit sticky. Add extra powder if the mix is sticking to the bench. Knead for 10 minutes, until the dough is shiny and elastic. Form the dough into a ball and leave to rise, covered, for an hour in a warm place. Liberally grease your Ironclad Legacy Pan with butter then dust with salt flakes and cacao or cocoa powder. The amount of salt you use is up to you! Once risen, knead the dough for a further 5 minutes. Form into a log and cut into 12 equal pieces. Using your hands, mould each piece into a ball and pat out into circles about 10cm in diameter. Evenly sprinkle the chopped chocolate in the middle of each dough circle. Seal the buns by pinching the doughy edges together firmly. Roll lightly in your hands to create a perfect bun shape then place seam side down in your prepared Ironclad Pan. Glaze the top of the buns with egg yolk and finish with a sprinkle of salt flakes. More or less depending on your tastebuds. Mix flour and water paste together, stirring well to remove all lumps and pipe a cross pattern on top of each bun. Leave to rise for 45 minutes covered in a warm place (don’t cover with a tea towel or cling film as this will ruin your crosses! I use an upturned bowl). Bake at 180°C for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven, brush with maple syrup and serve to the table hot with lashings of butter. And feel the love!

Tony's Ultimate Choc Drip Cake - Cook & Nelson

Tony's Ultimate Choc Drip Cake

Get your Easter bake-on with Georgia's Cakes ultimate Tony's choc drip cake! Flex your baking muscles with this show stopping chocolate egg-stravaganza guided by Georgia Green (@georgiascakes) INGREDIENTS: For the bottom tier 6-inch cake: for the 6 inch cake: 250g butter 250g Fairtrade caster sugar 200g (4) eggs 200g self raising flour 50g Fairtrade cocoa powder 1 tsp baking soda 150g plain yoghurt For the 2nd tier of 8-inch cake: 500g butter 500g Fairtrade caster sugar 400g (8) eggs 400g self raising flour 100g Fairtrade cocoa powder 2 tsp baking soda 400g plain yoghurt For the chocolate meringue buttercream (filling & coating for the 6 inch cake): 150g egg whites (about 5 large egg whites) 300g caster sugar 300g room temperature, unsalted butter 1 bar of Tony’s dark chocolate For the chocolate drips: 70g Tony’s dark chocolate 100ml whipping cream How to make the 6-inch cake: Preheat your oven to 170°C on fan Grease and line 2 x 6-inch cake tins Heat the butter in a saucepan on a low temperature until it's fully melted but not bubbling Combine the melted butter and the sugar in a large bowl using a whisk Add in the eggs and mix together to fully combine Sift in the flour (and baking powder if using plain flour), cocoa powder and baking soda and mix until fully incorporates Add in the yoghurt and mix in until the batter in completely smooth Evenly distribute the batter between the two tins (approx. 550g per tin) Bake for 45 - 50 minutes until the cakes are fully baked through, springing back to the touch Leave to cool completely on a cooling rack Georgia's top tip: Bake your cakes the day before decorating. Once the cakes have cooled, wrap them in clingfilm and leave at room temperature - not in the fridge. It's much easier to decorate a cake the day after it's been cooked! Less crumbs!​​​​​How to make the chocolate meringue buttercream (filling & coating for the 6-inch cake): In a stand mixer bowl or metal/glass bowl, mix the egg white and caster sugar using a rubber spatula, until fully incorporated Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water and continue mixing the sugar and egg whites with the spatula Heat up this mixture until it reaches 65°C and the sugar has completely dissolved, continuously mixing to ensure the temperature remains even throughout Place onto a stand mixer with a whisk attachment, or use an electric hand whisk and whisk the egg whites and sugar until a thick and glossy meringue has formed (approx. 5-10 minutes) Once a thick glossy meringue, leave the bowl and meringue to cool completely at room temperature Meanwhile, break up the Tony's chocolate bar into a heat proof bowl and melt the chocolate in the microwave at 30 seconds bursts or over the pan of water that you used before Once melted, leave to one side and let's finish off the buttercream! Start whisking the meringue again on a slow-medium speed Gradually add cubes of butter into the whisking meringue Once all the butter is inside the meringue, continue whisking at the same speed until it thickens and totally changes consistency (it may look like it's splitting but that's a good sign!) Turn up the speed high and whisk until the buttercream has come together and all the butter has mixed in Fold in the melted chocolate into the buttercream with a spatula until fully incorporated Georgia's top tip: if the buttercream is quite soft, place the bowl into the fridge for 10-15 minutes and then re whisk it.How to make the chocolate drips: To make the chocolate ganache drips, simply melt the chocolate and cream together. Either in the microwave at 30 second bursts or heat the cream in a small saucepan and once it's steaming, add the chocolate and let the steam of the cream melt the chocolate. The ganache should be quite loose; you may need to add more cream to achieve the correct consistency. Here's a bit more about Georgia:"I started my baking journey at Le Cordon Bleu in London where I trained in patisserie for 6 months. I always knew I didn’t want to work in a restaurant or hotel after my training, so I found myself working at a small coffee shop in London baking the fresh produce but giving it all a fancy twist. Word got out quickly that I started baking and all of a sudden people were asking me for birthday cakes. Even though I wasn’t trained in cake decorating, I took my knowledge and skills that I learnt from pastry school and applied it to cakes which gave my cakes a unique look. My cakes somewhat stood out amongst others and therefore gained popularity quite quickly which led me to launching Georgia’s Cakes in 2015 where I was selling bespoke cakes as my full time job. Over the years, my cakes were being sold in Harrods food hall in London and I worked with some very well known companies and made cakes for celebrities such as Cara Delevingne and Rihanna!""After opening my YouTube channel, I shifted my focus to teaching and now host regular cake workshops as well as sharing my recipes, tips and tricks online!"
