    Is the bread supposed to have a softness between a dinner roll and a scone?

    I used a different make of bread machine and put the fruit etc in flour before putting in. I only get 12 but they were a huge hit. Family want them even though Easter is over.

    This my first time to make Hot Cross Buns, and these turned out delicious! I formed the rolls the night before, and stuck them in the fridge covered with plastic wrap. I took them out in plenty of time to rise, and baked them in time for Easter meal. I opted for a flour paste to form the crosses, and I did not make cuts in the rolls. I also brushed with an egg wash before I baked them.
