Hot cross buns, one-a-penny, two-a-penny.....

Hot cross buns!
Guess what I made yesterday? I thought there should be traditional hot cross buns in the house for Easter breakfast, so got cooking. I found the recipe here and made the changes that some people mentioned (changed the white sugar to brown & doubled the spices. I also used mixed fruit instead of just currants). I made the mistake of leaving too much room between them when I left them to rise, and they ended up as single buns with a crusty edge instead of soft sides. I also used a baking tray instead of a lamington type pan which wouldn't have helped. I could have added even more spice too.
Anyway, the kids liked them and we had some for Easter breakfast, to wash down the chocolate ;-)

Happy Easter everyone, I hope you got a visit from the Easter Bunny!

I've grown out of the need to cook my own - apart from that - I'm the only one to eat them.
I'll come around to your place next year for my buns!
