Double Chocolate Vegan Hot Cross Buns

Recipe adapted from CookingwithKarma can be found on YouTube, Just in time for Easter are these yummy chocolate hot cross buns, My partner doesn't like fruit buns or bread so I had to think how  I could make chocolate ones, Here they are! *update she is vegan now check her channel out!

2 sachets of Yeast or 14 grams (add to warm milk and stir, set aside to froth up)
3-3/4 cups Plain Flour
1/4 cup Castor Sugar
3-4 Tbsp Cocoa powder
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1-1+ 1/2 cup Vegan Choc Chips
1/3 cup + 2 Tbsp Vegan Butter melted and cooled
300mls Warm Soy Milk
1 Egg worth of Egg Re-placer 

Preheat oven to 180.C.... After combining yeast and warm milk sift flour, cocoa powder and spices in a large bowl, Add sugar and stir.... Then add butter milk mixture, egg replacer and chocolate chips and stir well till it starts to form a dough.
On a clean bench scatter some flour over and start kneading the dough about 10mins until it becomes elastic, spray a large bowl with cooking spray and pop the dough in to it and cover with plastic wrap and a tea towel, sit it in a draft free warm spot for approx. 1 hour, Remove from bowl and "knock it back" (punch the air out of it) and give it a slight knead again not too long, form a log shape with it and cut it into about 10-12 round buns pop them onto a greased lined tray giving them enough space around each bun to expand, cover again and set aside for another 45mins- an hour and pop into the oven till golden or as dark as you like you can tell if they are done by tapping lightly on the bottom and it should sound hollow. Enjoy!   =)
