One-a-penny, two-a-penny, hot cross buns!
I love the smell of hot cross buns fresh from the oven, and the taste is even better especially with a healthy dose of melting butter. Yum! Today being Good Friday it was only appropriate to whip up a batch, and enjoy them with a hot drink.
Did you know that old English folklore is that these yummy buns can help the heal sick? With just one bite they can help a person recover. Another folklore is that they ensure good friendship the coming year when shared with a friend…these little buns sure are filled with lots of interesting history.
This recipe was from a Williams – Sonoma book, which was quite lengthy…but delicious.
The recipe found HERE seems easier, especially for a first attempt.
