Based on the traditional Easter hot cross buns these ones can be made year round and use icing to make the cross, or you can make other shapes as desired.

I adapted this for a bread machine from an old recipe. We always have these at Easter.

When I say 'easy' hot cross buns, they aren't actually 'easy' but they do work, which is a big thing to me, as I went through 5 recipes that didn't before I got to this one. Watch this recipe being made in Allrecipes Hot Cross Buns video.

Title says it all! You can choose to decorate them with the traditional flour and water cross or - after they're cooked - pipe on a melted chocolate cross. I make these without the fruit but I think currants and orange peel would be a good addition if you want some fruit.

With all the new chocolate chip hot cross buns on the market I am finding it harder to get a good traditional style so have resorted to making my own.

Infused with cardamom, these taste as wonderful as they smell. These buns are requested by family and friends every Easter and you can make the dough in your bread machine.

The most traditional food of Easter is not to be forgotten, even if you are eating clean. This hot cross bun contains absolutely no refined grains or sugars, is dairy-free, rich in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory spices and packed with delicious flavour. No sugar crashes or energy slumps with these, and no guilt either so what are you waiting for, try em!

Perfect to stay in the Easter tradition, these hot cross buns don't need milk or eggs, making them a perfect vegan option.

There are lots of variants on hot cross buns, most of them contain some mixture of dried fruit. Some have the cross made out of flour, I prefer glazed.
