With Easter approaching it's time for the traditional (at least on the east coast and in my native Sydney) Hot Crossed Buns. Once again HWMBO comes up with the baked goodies. Commercially produced HCBs in Sydney are excellent so people don't generally go to the effort of making their own at home.
After sampling a few of the commercially baked options in Seattle there is no question that home made is the only way to go. For extra credit and taste edification make your own organic peel to include in them. As I learned when I make my yearly Christmas Cake and seasonal Ginger cookies, home made organic peel makes a huge texture and flavor difference.
We'll have another batch of these coming up to Easter Sunday. Served warm, torn in half and buttered. Perfect.
