Hot Cross Buns
I decided to have a go at making Hot Cross Buns this year, and they worked out very well, so might make a habit of it!!
I used this recipe from taste.com.au and just made a couple of adjustments - I only used sultanas, no currants or peel, and I used 2 teaspoons of mixed spice, and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.
I also made a slight error and added all of the flour, instead of only 4 cups, so my mix had half a cup of flour extra, which didnt seem to cause a problem (thankfully!!! - must read the recipe properly!!). Instead of glazing them with the apricot jam, I mixed together 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, with 2 tablespoons of boiling water, and a sprinkling of cinnamon,and brushed this on the cooked buns.
