One a penny, two a penny ♫

♫ Hot cross buns.  Hot cross buns.  One a penny, two a penny.  Hot Cross Buns ♫

Who else can still remember how to play this on the recorder?!

It's Easter time which means it's time for Hot Cross Buns.  After our bread baking adventures in the past year we decided this year we wanted to try making them ourselves.

Not only to try it out and be adventurous, but also so that we could be particular about how they look and taste.  We didn't want the icing version of the cross on top - we both love the hard crunchy cross and wanted to recreate that.  Also I really dislike a strong cinnamon flavour and didn't want to spend a few weeks and calories buying and trying all different kinds of Hot Cross Buns from different supermarkets!!

So we did it!  We made our own.  Here's how it went:

A little, erm, more overdone than we would have liked but only a little!  Tasted good and that's what matters.
