  Hot Cross Buns are one of my favorite buns ever... I like to put Cinnamon on mines to add that sweetness.... you can make these or you can buy the premade from the store... But I would advise you to make them from hand..... The premade Buns are good but there is nothing like home made baking..... they are so good and the reason why I wanted everybody to check them out because these are original Sweet Buns Out.. these are also hard to make and hard to copy.... If something isnt done right the whole thing will be ruin and you don't want flat buns.... I advise you to follow these directions carefully because alot of people make that mistake when making buns.... SPECIALLY BURNT BOTTOMS OF BUNS... Try And Enjoy :) And Subscribe
