Chocolate and orange hot cross buns
I’m getting in early with some Easter baking over at Aol this week, and I’ve come up with something for that oft forgotten minority: people who don’t like dried fruit. How they suffer during traditional British festivals, like Christmas and Easter, when sacks of currants, sultanas and raisins get dragged out of the cupboard and converted into cakes and buns so heavy they could be fired from canons in a particularly retro war.
So, this year’s hot cross buns contain no with dehydrated vine fruit at all. Instead, they are stuck with chunks of dark chocolate, along with a good whack of cinnamon, ginger and orange zest to give them that all important medieval Good Friday flavour.
