      These buns were the best!! The dough turns out the softest baked buns. I followed the ingredients as written. I changed a few things baking them though after looking on the bbc food website. I baked the buns at 475F for 9 minutes. Before baking I made a flour paste from 2 TBS flour and 2 TBS water. Mixed it in a baggie and piped it in the cut crosses. This turned out more authentic to the buns I ate whilst in England. After baking I brush them with sugar glaze. I think this is some of the best homemade bread I have ever made!

      Easy, easy, easy! Not to mention great tasting, light and fluffy. I cut mine into 16 as that seemed to fit the 13 x 8 dish perfectly. Unglazed they are great toasted too. Thanks for sharing!

      Mmmmmm! We *loved* these! I reduced the butter to 1/4 cup, as someone else had suggested, and put in raisins, currants, and cut up dried apricots. I watched the machine as it was mixing, and did add more flour. Not sure how much more. I cut the crosses in quite deeply, and could see them when they came out of the oven. Will definitely be making these again. Thanks, Oster71.
