A few weeks ago, just before Easter, the husband [my husband is australian] lamented the lack of hot cross buns in Japan.
Not wanting to disappoint him, i did a quick search online and picked the first recipe i found [bad idea]
It ended up being more like rock buns than hot cross buns but i thought i post pics anyway since they tasted totally yummy!
EASY HOT CROSS BUNS [but in reality, these are rock buns i think]
