Have I told you that I love bread? Well, I love bread incredibly much and it is hard for me to imagine life without a good loaf of bread and butter to go along with it.
Every Easter Sunday, I rejoice that Christ has risen but I also sneakily rejoice that the Church gives out free hot cross buns!! One day (far from Easter Sunday), I was craving for these soft spiced hot cross buns and realised that none of the bakeries were selling them. The only way for me have them in front of me was to get off my couch and just get down to making them.
These buns that I made are slightly different from the conventional hot cross buns because I added grated orange zest, chopped apples and an orange glaze over the spiced buns.
Nevertheless, it was a slightly challenging and fun process and the best part of it all was being able to share them with friends and family, watching smiles spread across their tired faces:)
P.S. Sorry I can’t provide you with a recipe for this one because I didn’t really use a recipe for these buns. Decided to bake by heart after searching up a couple of recipes on the internet. This method is not always recommended though;) Nevertheless, I urge you to bake whether it is to have fun making a mess or to stay happy and spread the love in the case of success;) !
