Hot Cross Buns
50 mins (prep 30, cooking 20)
12 ingredients
24 servings
Shhh don't tell Mom I have posted the secret recipe here. I will be in the doghouse, she doesn't share this with anyone but I feel more people should be trying these. They are the best, far out does my grandma's and my aunts. Mom donates a pan of these for the local 4-H Cake Bingo every Easter. Someone should have kept track over the last 20 some years how much her buns have raised for the club.. Follow Instructions carefully. Time does not include resting rising time.
