Hot Cross Bun Loaf
Easter is just around the corner! And this Hot Cross Bun Loaf recipe is perfect for breakfast or brunch time around this festive period. I am a huge fan of baking projects and Easter buns are one of my favorite things to bake. I make them every year, and you can find this traditional British recipe here. But this year, I decided to make a tweak to the original recipe, and I baked this amazing bun loaf. And my family really loved it!
This fruity loaf is fluffy, soft, and delicately sweet. I have added a handful of cranberries and raisins, chopped hazelnuts, orange zest, and a selection of spices. But feel free to use your favorite dried fruits or nuts. Anyway, this rich loaf would make a perfect food gift to add to your Easter basket too.
To make the Hot Cross Bun Loaf, you will need the following ingredients:
