Made this yesterday and couldn't have asked for a better bun. I made some changes but I don't think anything that would have a huge impact on the outcome. I used 1 cup buttermilk (needed to use up) and 1/4 cup 2% milk. Trader Joe's has a Triple Berry mix which has golden raisins, cherries, blueberries and cranberries in it so I used that for my dried fruit. Everything else was as recipe stated. After proofing yeast of which I added a teaspoon or so of sugar I starting adding every ingredient in order on recipe to the bowl (without mixing) until everything was in. Then I gently started mixing, folding, kneading with my hand just until incorporated. I covered bowl with some saran wrap and let it rest for about 5 or 10 minutes. I sprayed a 9 X 13 baking pan with cooking spray and dropped by heaping spoonfuls 4 across and 6 down to make a total of 24 buns. At this point I put on disposable plastic gloves then sprayed one hand with cooking spray, rubbed them together and then picked up each piece of dough and formed it into a ball returning back to the pan. This really helped as the dough is very sticky and hard to work with. Covered with saran wrap and let rise. Baked for 25 minutes (my oven took that amount of time to brown). After cooled I made the icing and spooned it all over the top like cinnamon rolls instead of making crosses. Was loved by everyone at our family Easter dinner. Even my husband who I thought would not like due to the cardamom enjoyed.
