These are wonderful eaten hot, almost straight from the oven and smothered with butter. Preferably accompanied by a hot cuppa and some good company. Or they can be toasted and eaten later and they are just as good eaten cold. They smell gorgeous while cooking. Make double the amount and once cooled they can be frozen.
Instead of sultanas, you could use raisins, currants, or mixed peel, or any combination. Also the sugar glaze can be flavoured with orange juice or similar.
I'm an experienced baker, I make my own bread on a regular basis, but I couldn't make this recipe work. After an hour trying to clean the gloop off my hand enough to throw it away I had to concede my husband is right....hot cross buns are so cheap in the supermarket it isn't worth the faff. Totally despondent at have g to throw away all those ingredients 😓 - 30 Mar 2018
