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!
I made 6 to try them - gorgeous and so easy to make - 25 Mar 2016
This recipe worked well! Wonderful texture, excellent flavour. Not too sweet, but perfect if you're spreading with butter & marmalade, like me I made half quantities as I wanted to test the recipe first and got 8 VERY large buns! - 31 Mar 2018
Easy to make with great results. Will do again. - 22 Apr 2017
