Hot Cross Buns

Hot Cross Buns are a very special treat once-a-year for Good Friday but over the years the ones available from supermarkets have become more and more disappointing and more and more expensive so why not have a go at making your own?

This recipe is really easy and full of the traditional flavours; spices, candied peel, dried fruits but if you fancy something a little different it is really easy to change the flavours – chocolate chips and orange or cranberries and white chocolate…there are so many good combinations!

If 18 buns is too many (really? just think of them toasted and dripping with butter!) then it is simple to cut the recipe in half and just make 9 or 10 buns.

These fruity buns are so good it’s a shame to only make them once a year so we make them without the crosses all through the year!!

  1. I cant get the easy blend dried yeast here in Spain, but every supermarket sells the fresh yeast, would I use the same quantity of fresh as dried please, Denise
