Hot Cross Buns I
These buns were nothing short of magnificent! I tossed finely diced candied fruit and currents in flour, (totaling 3/4 cup) and put it in at the last 5 minutes of kneading in the machine. For spices, I used 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp freshly ground cardamom, and 1/4 tsp clove. I just added it to the flour. These remind me of the HCBs of my youth...Thank you so very much for this recipe. What an excellent product.

Best Buttercream Frosting
I've looked for a super smooth and creamy frosting like this for a long time. Using superfine sugar is a very good tip, or else you have to beat it forever to get the coarser sugar to dissolve. If you use unsalted butter, add a pinch of salt; it needs it. Cook the milk and flour, stirring constantly, until you cannot stir down the boil. That will get rid of a flour taste and adds beautiful texture to the frosting. Have patience and follow directions. This frosting is a dream come true. NOTE: it does not "harden" nor develop an outer, drier layer. It stays very creamy and soft. Just perfection!

Aunt Anne's Coffee Cake
I have been looking for this recipe for many years. I used to make this cake back in the early 80s. The recipe got lost in my many moves. I am delighted to find it again, just as easy, just as delicious! TIPS: Use COLD butter. Remember to NOT over-mix. Lumpy batter means tender cake. Also, I like to add 1/4 C chopped nuts to the streusel topping. Simple and perfect every time.
