Magazine Cover Recipes - Brandy spiced heart cross buns from the Waitrose Magazine March 2013 issue

The first thing I have to say about this recipe is that I did not take up the suggestion of piping hearts instead of crosses on my buns. Hot Cross Buns are traditional for Good Friday and I am never going to change that view. I also always make half of my mixture with chocolate chips instead of fruit. I wish I could eat dried vine fruits, but I cannot. So the review of the genuine buns is by Paul and my parents, Monica and Richard.

The smell of the buns baking in the oven was intoxicating, and I wish that I soaked the fruit in the brandy for longer. However, the verdict was of a good smell and flavour. Seconds were had, and a doggy bag had to be handed out, which says it all really!
