Rum Glaze
Makes ⅓ cup
  • ⅓ cup Golden Syrup (recipe follows)
  • 1 tablespoon (15 grams) spiced rum
  1. In a medium saucepan, heat Golden Syrup over medium-high heat until warmed. Remove from heat, and stir in rum. Return to heat, and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Let cool to room temperature.
Pro Tip: Glazes can be made a week in advance and refrigerated in an airtight container. Brushing the Rum Glaze on the hot cross buns while still warm will help the glaze adhere and allow a small amount to be absorbed into the bread, further sweetening your rolls.
