Hot Cross Buns

After seeing a recipe for Hot Cross Buns on the Cellardoor Magazine blog, I knew I had to make them!  I’m usually not a fan of these Easter treats as I’m not keen on mixed peel, however a light bulb went off inside my head – why not add cranberries instead?  Thank you light bulb!  I now have lots of lovely girly Hot Cross Buns waiting to be toasted and smothered in lemon curd.  If you get sick of chocolate this weekend, I suggest you try these!

You can find the recipe here.  I didn’t actually follow the recipe I’m sending you all to, as I misread it and tipped all the flour in at the start – silly billy.  I’ll definitely be making these again and will post a recipe up myself.  There are a few things I’d like to change; adding some more cinnamon, maybe some lemon zest and other dried fruits.  I also want to try piping a flour and water paste onto the top of the buns to create the crosses.  Despite all these additions and alterations, my first attempt were really yummy and I was very pleased with how they turned out, in spite of the distaster I had at the beginning!  They’re not perfect but they sure do taste good!
