Hot cross buns are a beloved staple of the United Kingdom and in countries colonized by the British, such as Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. They can be baked as rounds, on a large sheet pan, or as pull-apart rolls in a smaller 9×13-inch buttered baking dish.

4/22/16 did again , Rose well . Too much cardamom will try a different recipe next time, maybe Martha Stewart’s.
This did not work for me. I followed Allysong’s recommendations because, when Input the 1cup of flour, yeast & H2O it never bubbled, so I followed her. It rose beautifully. I formed into balls into the Pyrex & let rise again. Looked great. I should have baked them then.nmy mistake was putting them in frig overnight, unbaked, & trying to bake in the am. My better sense said this wasn’t going to work, they had deflated a bit& never warmed up. I never bothered to glaze. A waste of time & ingredients.
Yummy! I mostly followed the recipe. I used all purpose flour and currants as, due to Covid, I didn’t want to run to the store. The only issue I had was with the icing. It looked like a cross when it first went on but, by morning, had dissolved. I was so pleased with this recipe that I made a 2nd batch to share with family & friends.
