Hot cross buns are apparently traditionally eaten on Easter Sunday, I didn’t know that. I actually made these for Good Friday lol tradition went totally out the window then!…I would love to eat them throughout the year as they’re amazing!
I have already tried a recipe for Hot Cross Buns last year it was a Paul Hollywood’s recipe check it out. This year I thought I would try Nigella’s I really like Nigella Lawson her recipes generally work out and they are easy to make and straight forward, she also doesn’t skimp on the fat and butter!!! but once in a while is all good.
I slightly changed the method Nigella’s used to create the buns. I find the American style of making bread to work out much better, they usually had hot water/milk to the yeast and leave it for 5mins. This method for bread making has worked out better for me.
