Comments: Critic's choice: Hot cross buns


You will never convince me that the US method is better than the traditional British recipe like the one I used here. Pastry crosses are simply tastier, especially when the whole bun is covered with a sugary glaze in any event!

By the way, the recipe only called for one tsp of cinnamon - I always triple the quantity because I love cinnamon.

Well, next year I'll show you MY version - you can't make an informed decision until you have tried both! ;)

The cloves are missing from the English version!!
This I'm sure is what gives the authentic taste, so the American ones must win in my book.
