Microwave Hot Cross Mug Bread

One of the biggest things I miss about going gluten free is the hot x buns. I used to eat them all year round. Toasted with butter. As a sandwich with cheese in. Warmed in the microwave and dipped in baileys, mmmmmmm.

Yes you can buy gf hot cross buns, but they are no where near the same, they all seem to be tough and way too stuffed with sugar. This is the best alternative I’ve found and the best bit is I usually have all these items in the cupboard so can whip some up whenever I feel the need.


  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Water
  • 3 tbsp Milk (I use Hemp Milk)
  • 1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Coconut Sugar
  • 5 1/2 tbsp Gluten Free Self Raising Flour (I use Dove’s Farm)
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp Raisins

Mix wet ingredients and sugar in a large mug. Add dry ingredients. Mix well.

Place in microwave for 90 seconds. Voila!
