Loved these! I used all raisins because I didn't want to go through the trouble of finding the orange peel. Like another reviewer said, there is plenty of orange flavor. Only use ONE pan!
These were so easy to make and they were so good we couldn't stop eating them! Delicious and this will be my recipe for hot cross buns from now on. YUM! I used the fast acting yeast so that the preperation was even faster.
I have not made these. I will not make these. At least this year. Easter meals are planned a couple of weeks in advance. To receive a recipe two days before their use date makes me scratch my head and wonder about the people who put out this email. Really now, does it make sense only to me that this should have been sent out at least one week ago...or longer??
OMG were these good. I followed the recipe exactly except,after I dissolved the yeast in the milk, I put that mixture and all the rest of the bread ingredients in the breadmaker on dough setting. I did use two pans, came out great for me. I will make these all the time.
Taste Wonderful, BUT DO NOT put into two pans, put all sixteen pieces into a 9 x 13 pan so they rise uniformly. Someond did not proof read directions! I used all currents or raisins instead of orange peel, there is already enough orange flavor. Rises up Beautifully!
Someone needs to do a better job of proofreading and/or matching the recipe to the photo. The recipe says to make 16 buns and to place them in 2 pans, yet the photo shows all 16 buns in 1 pan. I am planning to make this tomorrow, and I'll have to figure out what works best once I see how much dough I have.
this was an easy dough to work with. taste is excellent, appearance is excellent as well.
