Preheat your oven to 160℃/320℉ (fan-forced).
Place your flour in a big bowl and make a well in the middle.
In a blender, food processor or by hand, beat your milk, sweetener, butter, egg, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, acid, cinnamon, mixed spice and vanilla for about a minute until well combined and a little frothy (Thermomix melt your butter, 1 minute, temp 80, speed 4, then add the milk, sweetener, egg, rising agents, spices and mix 1 min, speed 5).
Gently mix in your dried fruit (Thermomix reverse blade, 10 seconds, speed 2).
Add this to the flour and fold through gently until just combined. Don’t over mix it.
For the crosses, mix 2 tablespoons of flour with enough water to form a dough. Roll it into little sausages to lay over the buns in a cross. This is a great job for the kids.
Alternatively, julienne apple to make quick, easy, delicious crosses.
Spoon into the muffin cases and place your cross.
For the glaze, mix all ingredients together.
Bake for 15 minutes or until cooked through (firm to touch in the middle). Brush over the glaze whilst hot.
Enjoy hot out of the oven or to reheat, toasted in a sandwich press.
