This is probably the fifth or sixth Hot Cross Buns recipe I have tried, and the ONLY one where the soft, fluffy texture is what I have always tried to achieve. These remind me so much of the hot cross buns I remember as a child - slightly sweet, soft and pillowy, almost like a dinner roll. I know that's not what many people expect from a Hot Cross Bun, but I am so happy I tried this recipe! The one down side was that the dough was actually a bit too moist, so I had to knead in a bit of flour in order to be able to handle it, but other than that these were pretty much foolproof. I used a combination of dried cranberries and dried blueberries, and orange extract in the icing instead of almond. Thanks for sharing!
