Home Made Hot Cross Buns
April 3, 2012
One of the things that I love most about Easter is hot cross buns. I made them for the first time last year and have not made them again since then until recently. I am not sure why – why can we not eat hot cross buns all year around? It never occurred to me, that is my answer. I leave off the cross as I am not good with a piping bag.
These buns are packed full of fruit. They make a great breakfast food, filled with delicious home-dried fruit they also make a good kinder or school snack. The sweetness of the apple and dried fruit is offset by the zing of the lemon peel.
Don’t be put off by the length of the recipe – I have broken it up so that the process is easy to follow.
I have adapted this recipe from Gourmet Traveller Magazine.
