Hot Cross Buns

Yesterday was Palm Sunday and I felt compelled to do some "Easter" baking. I had a box of hot roll mix in the cupboard and was inspired to make Hot Cross Buns for the first time - yum!

I followed the directions on a box of Pillsbury Hot Roll Mix and simply added 1/4 cup sugar and 1 cup chopped fruit bits during mixing. They taste delicious, but I realized after the fact that 1/2 teaspoon each of nutmeg and cinnamon would make them perfect (next time!). I made the icing from 1 cup of powered sugar mixed with a few tablespoons of hot water.

The box made 18 hot cross buns...and we've already eaten 6! Happy Easter.

I had a couple of purchased hot cross buns but have been so busy stuffing my face with wedding cake that the rest are in the freezer for the time being. We tend to eat hot cross buns all year round in our house! Bravo to you for making your own Anne, they look scrumpious.
