Perfect Hot Cross Buns

Tray of perfect Host Cross Buns
With the countdown to Easter starting, it’s the season for dusting off the Hot Cross Bun recipes. The recipe for this week’s batch comes from Felicity Cloake’s How-to-Cook-the-Perfect column in the Guardian. These are not at all like your typical store-bought bun: her riot of spice includes cardamom, cloves and saffron in addition to the usual suspects. An egg wash going in and a sugary glaze on the way out of the oven produces a delicious, enamelled crust. Stay tuned for more Hot Cross Bun posts.
