Does working with a yeast make you turn and run!  Me too ... this recipe is perfect to overcome that fear and make you a baking star.

A family favourite for breakfast on Saturday as everyone is home and able to enjoy a quiet start to the day.   The smell of cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg in these buns as they bake makes it difficult to wait for them to come out of the oven, best eaten warm and with butter. Popping leftover buns into the toaster the next day wafts back the wonderful smells ... yet again!

Tips from the Pro …

• Soak the currents, raisins, mixed fruit in hot rum or apple juice for a ½ hour to add flavour and rehydrate the fruits.

• Using a stand mixer will help with kneading the dough, you can make by hand and mix with a wooden spoon ... it is a great arm workout!

• You can freeze the dough buns prior to baking them; remove from freezer, bring to room temperature and let proof until double in size before baking.

DID you know ..

Wikipedia states, A hot cross bun is a spiced sweet bun made with currants or raisins, marked with a cross on the top, and traditionally eaten on Good Friday.
