Get some help from your bread machine and let it do most of the work for you! The hot cross bun dough is started in the bread machine, then formed into buns and baked in the oven.
I wonder if there is a mistake in the amount of milk (600ml) and plain flour (360g) as the mixture came out of my bread machine like a thick batter and I had to add a lot more flour to it to try and save it. We ended up with 12 huge hot cross buns, but they were good. - 25 Mar 2016
