The recipe for these buns can be used all year round as the buns can double-up as afternoon tea cakes; the buns without the cross. I use mixed fruit in this recipe with orange zest and a fresh apple which combined are flavoursome. I like the flavour of cinnamon and use 3 teaspoons but if you are not so keen on it then use 2 teaspoons. My family and friends enjoy these buns and I hope you do too. This recipe makes 10 to 12 buns.
