Baking Hot Cross Buns every Easter Week has become a bit of a tradition in our house. For the past 6 years I have baked these buns with reasonable success. Initially, I used my trusted bread machine to provide the family with yeasted goods, to great effect, I might add.
However, with my increased baking confidence, for the past two years I have baked without the aid of a machine and used Paul Hollywood’s Hot Cross Bun recipe. It is very straightforward and this year I have decided to adapt it to incorporate one of our family’s favourite spices – Cardamom.
