Hot Cross Buns

I've never made my own hot cross buns before so I thought I'd give them a go. Used Nigella's recipe from Feast (amazing book). They turned out OK (I'd make them bigger- 10-12 rather than 16) and reduce the cooking time. They were lovely hot with a but of melting butter.

Taking their time: 1 1/2 hours to rise. (Apparently better overnight but who can wait that long?)

 All rolled out and left to rise for 45mins.
 First bun ready for the oven

Slightly too long in the oven so a bit more like crunchy scones than soft buns. I like the orange and cinnamon flavors though.

Hopefully better next time! Semper ad meliora.
