I have tried various recipes for Hot Cross Buns, but by far my favorite is the recipe from the "Simply Recipes" Website. The buns were tender, not mushy or tough, flavorful, and just plain delicious. I love the spices used in this recipe - cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, cardamon, all complimented by grated orange zest. As I was whisking together they dry ingredients the aroma of the spices was breathtaking.
The dough came together very nicely and was very easy to work with. I used all currants in my dough but you can use half currants with chopped candied citrus peel. Either way, you will have one delicious bun.
