Let me tell you about my first experience making Hot Cross Buns.
Our smoke detector went off. In my defense, it is sensitive. Unfortunately, so is my firstborn. He went screaming off to bed (of his own accord) just to escape the "bad noise."
So...where was I? Oh yes. Well. I got hot and cross and the buns got burned.
Once I cut off the burned bottoms, they tasted wonderful. Yummy bread goodness with a touch of sweet.
Now I am off to clean up the disaster that is my kitchen.
(P.S. That picture is not of my buns. It's from the recipe site.)
