Here's this year's batch of hot cross buns.
I've followed Paul Hollywood's suggestions from the Easter Bake Off Masterclass in two respects - adding some apple and bunching them up close. The first seems like a good idea, but don't cut down on the dried fruit like I did. The second makes piping the crosses easier when in mass production. It looks more professional, but I think that mine are TOO close - and I don't have a problem crossing them individually and having more crust. Home made HX buns are great!
