Penny Buns Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2005
This is a fabulous recipe. I was desperate for a good hot cross bun recipe to make at Easter and this worked really well. I changed some of the ingredients and method slightly to suit - I omitted the egg, and instead creamed the butter and sugar with the cinnamon (I also added nutmeg, vanilla essence and citrus peel to the fruit). I prefer to make smaller buns so I cut the dough into eight pieces and made four small buns out of each piece - 32 total. I found them sweet enough if using a sugar glaze on top. Thanks very much Arvilla - you saved my first Easter in Japan.

These are great! A little time consuming (but that is the nature of bread baking). I have 2 small sons, so I made 18 smaller rolls, it cut cooking time down to just over 15 minutes. The house smelt amazing while these were baking - excellent while still warm with butter!!!

The buns came out huge and beautiful looking but taste wise, they were bland. I guess I expected them to turn out sweeter. Maybe next time I'll add more sugar.
