Vegan Hot Cross Buns
Serves 15
Although I miss the rich Easter eggs of my pre-vegan days, yet again vegan food has come through for me in my hour (or holiday, as it were) of need. I am yet to come across a recipe than cannot be successfully veganised, and these hot cross buns are no exception. This recipe makes the most beautifully moist buns, that taste amazing with a cup of tea and a healthy spread of (vegan) butter. Happy Easter!
