Yours definitely look better chookie. To think at that price your last batch is worth nearly $50! I can't believe the price of hot cross buns this year.

It's a lovely feeling when your home created product tastes better than one from a renowned baker or wherever. We felt that with some of the Jean Pierre Sancho breads. It is probably the mass produced factor.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Goldfish.  Look pretty good to me.  I am going to try some grilled on a hot grill,  like we had in a Cafe.

They look lovely Goldfish. Nothing like a homemade hot cross buns.

Made a 1/2 batch yesterday (well, overnight from Thursday). Just lovely, didn't bother with the x or glaze but you can't have Easter without a fruity bun for breakfast......

Bonsai,  did you reduce the fruit for the 1/2 mix?

Hi Chookie I want to make your hot x buns with sourdough starter and wondering if I can use some Spelt flour instead of the white bakers flour, can you please let me know if you have a recipe I can use, would be so grateful.    :D

Pinkus, easy to make by hand.  These SD ones are heavier than the yeast ones, but that is normal.
I haven't made them with Spelt flour but would think they might be ok but even a bit heavier still as Spelt doesn't have as much gluten for the wild yeast in the SD to work with.

Thanks Chookie for helping me....my husband has some sour dough starter in the fridge I was going to use that and also use the spelt flour instead of the white flour but now I am not so sure  :-\   I do prefer sourdough over anything else, love the density of it, (not particularly fond of white bread)  would the combo of sourdough & spelt be too much do you think ?  Would appreciate your feedback on this....Thanks    ;D
