Hot Cross Buns

By Crustabakes

I had the “hot cross bun” song in my  head the whole time i was making these. My subconscious brain just seemed to have the song on “repeat”. It was quite annoying actually, considering that it was one of my least favourite nursery rhyme.

But song or no song, i am glad i made these though.

After all, Good Friday and Easter are just around the corner.

Okay, who am i kidding? With about a month or so away, Good Friday and Easter are not exactly around the corner. But after that chocolate rolls, i just wanted to find another excuse to make another batch of ultra soft, ultra moist and ultra chewy yeasted buns.

Plus it’s always good to be armed with a good recipe right?

While the original hot cross bun is spiced and studded with dried fruit, mine was plain, and filled with custard.

And like the chocolate rolls, the recipe really lived up to its name and worked its magic again in creating the most tender crumbs and the finest of pores. And I absolutely loved how the subtly sweet soft bread carresed my tongue and the roof of my mouth. These buns are perfect for breakfast, with a cup of tea.

Now, all i need is for the song to stop treadmilling in my head!
