      I made this as a slice instead of muffins and we all loved it - I loved it for being so easy and used fruit mince instead of currants but will try it again with "real" dried fruit.

      These muffins have the exact flavour of hot cross buns! These were easy to make, and took the whole 20 min. in my oven. The spicing is just right, mild but still interesting. I made a little more icing than was called for and just drizzled it on randomly. The only change I made was I substituted chopped dates for the currants as that is what I had available. The dates went really well with the rest of the ingredients, and would not hesitate to make them that way again. I also waited about 30 min. after taking them out of the oven before drizzling on the glaze (didn't want it to melt off). Really delicious and fast too, faster than making or even going out to buy hot cross buns!

      Very yummy muffin recipe which were enjoyed by all.The citrus zest taste really dominates in this rather than the cinnamon and allspice.
