. . . a little late, I know but I did make these Hot Cross Buns on Good Friday, I was just too tired on Friday night to do the post. I like to make my own and I avoid the buns available in the shops and supermarkets like the plague. Sometimes they are for sale in January!! Perhaps not eating them until Good Friday can be considered a Lenten sacrifice???

Crosses on (pretty sloppy, I know):
Ready to eat, yumm:
Making them on good Friday brings back pleasant childhood memories of Hot Cross Buns only on good Friday and chocolate Easter Eggs on Easter Sunday. The only time we got chocolate was at Christmas, Easter and the occasional birthday. We truly live in a time of excess (you only need to look at my fabric stash to know I am one of the guilty ones).
