    My husband and I made these last night, and they were so delicious as well as lovely to look at. We omitted the sultanas, as my husband hates them and had them plain. They are the best hot cross buns we have ever had, so we will definitely be making them again. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.

    Lovely, taste just like the real thing!! I used spelt flour and a mix of currants/sultanas. Mine were a little flat, but the taste compensated this. Thanks for sharing.Cooking 7

  • Soft and fluffy buns, thanks

    Soft and fluffy buns, thanks for the recipe. I didn't have enough fruit so I made half with chocolate chips; tasty but not as pretty as the fruit ones because the chocolate melted and made the dough wet.
