It wasn't long before the dough was ready to be shaped, and Boo helped pipe the crosses on top. Then half an hour in a hot oven, and soon we were enjoying fresh buns with a cup of tea.
Boo's experimental mixture rose to perfection, and he pronounced his buns to be "just delicious".
Perhaps a half cup of sultana bran is the "secret ingredient" for perfect hot-cross buns!
