An Easter favourite! These hot cross buns are relatively easy to make and are infinitely more delicious than anything bought in the shops. Experiment and add chocolate chips or chopped apple to your buns, or you could even soak the raisins overnight in some tea and add a little orange zest - the options are endless!
If you wish, you could pipe melted chocolate crosses onto your chocolate chip hot cross bun variations!

Easy to make with great results. Will do again. - 22 Apr 2017
Recipe made 12 good sized buns. Only thing I had to do differently was in leaving the yeast to froth up, which took over an hour and both the dough rising as well as the buns rising (before baking) took much longer than described in the method. Otherwise delicious with a lovely consistency. - 01 Apr 2017
