Hot Cross Buns – 2nd attempt

These hot cross buns were the third thing I baked on Sunday during my marathon baking session; However they never got to work. I was so ashamed of them, I have a reputation to upkeep! The crosses went a great deal better than last year as I pipped the crosses on, but they still looked like something one of the kids in Foundation had made. I also didn’t leave long enough for the dough to rise so they ended up dry and quite heavy. The photo features the one bun that was remotely decent looking.

I wasn’t prepared to throw the whole batch away so was really glad when I came across Margaret’s post for Jamie Oliver’s Hot Cross Pudding. I made an individual portion tonight and it was lovely. A perfect antidote for the cold, frosty evening.

Don’t forget the Hotel Chocolat Easter Egg hunt finishes tonight. Enter now to have you chance of winning a fab easter egg.
