How do you make a hot cross bun easy?

What is the white stuff on hot cross buns?

Hot cross buns are rich with history dating back to the 12th century. They’re yeasted sweet buns filled with spices and various fruits such as currants, raisins, and/or candied citrus.

How do you make a cross with hot cross buns?

Once buns are just warm (not hot), stir together the 1/2 cup powdered sugar and about 2 1/2 tsp milk. You can add more powdered sugar to thicken it up if needed. Transfer glaze to a ziploc bag, cut off the tip of the bag and pipe a cross shape over each of the buns. Serve warm or at room temperature.

What is a tea cake made of?

A teacake is a light, sweet bun with dried fruit such as currants, sultanas and fruit peel.

You can add a teaspoon of allspice to the flour, if you like.

Why is it called a tea cake?
