Hot Cross Buns

I've carried on my family's tradition of making 'Hot Cross Buns', using the recipe that my Mum and Granny used.
I still weigh the ingredients in lbs and ozs.

I've not given the recipe here as there are so many similar recipes on the web or in cookbooks or magazines.

Here's one I've also made and it's very good.

I made 24 buns, freezing 12 when cool, before I brushed on the sugar syrup.


                     I love this plate - it's 'Robin' from Emma Bridgewater's  'Birds' series. The buns are covering the robin! Here he is!

The buns look beautiful Eira! I've never made them - perhaps this should be the year?

We have the EB Robin mug - one of my favourites.
