Hot Cross Buns

Easter is here again and as often, I decided to bake hot cross buns.  The last ones I made were from and 18th century recipe and they were quite solid, so this year I am aiming for soft and spicy.
Out came the ever reliable Bero Book from the kitchen draw.  A quick check that we had all of the ingredients, plus some nutmeg, and off we go......
The mixed dough looks very small for 8 buns and the fruit looks excessive, but I have confidence in these recipes.
Once the dough was divided and marked with a flour and water cross, they looked the business.
Just a quick brush with sugar solution when they come out of the oven hot and they are almost ready to eat.
Four for the table and four for the freezer.  Happy Easter.
