Oh cookie and no mention of being yours. Well they are really yummy if that's any conciliation. If you send Monica a message I'm sure she would be happy to mention that's it's your recipe. The problem is that people copy other people's recipes and place them else where without mentioning where the recipe come from. Well I'm glad I know where it come from now.

I'm eating one right now. I'm never buying hot cross buns ever again now I know I can make them successfully myself.

Chookie's hot cross buns are the best.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

I was planning on making the Vienna bread today but I couldn't find bread improver in the shops.

So, I made Chookie's hot cross buns. Fantastic recipe. DH sacrificed himself to be taste tester as soon as I had finished glazing them - before I could take a pic. Thanks for a great recipe Chookie.

Do you use an iPad MEP?  They are ok when you click on them.

MEP, they look fantastic.  Hope I can find time this year to make some. I noticed some today in Bakers Delight, I think they were $1.40 each.
A couple of years ago, 2 friends and I made 13 dozen.  Most for an elderly citizens club.  They were supposed to be for their lunch, but most of them slipped them into their bag to take home.

Cookie, yes I do use my iPad. That's not happened before

I have always loved hot cross buns and tried baking some last year ( our first year in the US) as they are not sold in the shops/bakery and they were okay. DH thinks these are much improved. He ate two in five minutes!
