I love hot cross buns. When we were in the supermarket today the coffee shop was advertising 'tea and toasted Hot X buns' so we decided to treat ourselves. When the buns came they were ordinary tea cakes! I didn't like to make a fuss,but I did miss the cross!!

I've always wanted to make hot cross buns but never have. After seeing how much ones from the bread shop cost yesterday I think that might be motivating enough! Are they easy?

I think I've finally pigged out on hot-cross buns- I buy a packet a week as soon as they appear but just couldn't bring myself to choose them this week! I did score a cross into the top of our chicken pie tonight!! I love your post from yesterday. Our rector held a Passover Meal in church last night with full explanation of the symbolism., fascinating stuff- but of course I forgot my camera!

Hummm, it looks yummy already!!

That looks lovely, are they easy to make? I've never tried. They need yeast, don't they? Let us know how they turned out. I can almost feel the butter melting on them...

Hot Cross Buns are so delicious! With lashings of butter of course, and a lovely cup of tea. Yummy.

Good luck. I hope they turn out fab.
I love hot cross buns. Unfortunately, if I have them in the house I eat too many. Isn't it sad that two years of exercise can be cancelled out by a few hot cross indulgencies? xx

Yet another thing I miss about the uk! - maybe I should make them too!
