Spicy Sourdough Fruit Loaf or Sourdough Hot Cross Buns

(makes 3 loaves or 2 loaves and one batch of hot cross buns)

2 cups buttermilk
3 cups sourdough starter
1 tsp salt
¼ cup honey (3 oz)
2 tbsp butter
Around 6-8 cups flour (about 2lb)
1 lb mixed fruit
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp mace
1 tsp nutmeg

1. Put buttermilk, sourdough starter, salt, honey and butter into a large bowl.

2. Mix.

3. Add fruit and spices and mix again.

4. Gradually add flour and mix until it turns into dough.

5. Knead for 5-10 minutes.

6. Divide into three tins. (Or into two tins and one batch of buns.)

7. Bake at GM 3 for 1 to 1 ¼ hours. (Buns need less time - around 30 minutes.)

8. Turn out of tins immediately and cool on wire rack before slicing.
