Hot cross buns are traditionally an Easter season treat that reminds us of the holy nature of the season by making a cross shape on top of the buns, but Olivia thought outside the Easter season and outside the box by making this delicious treat in her bread machine. You can still add icing if you like and it would be a delicious breakfast bread or just about anytime bread. The combination of lemon rind and raisins or candied fruit is what gives this bread its delightful flavor. If you have a bread machine and perhaps you haven't used it for a while, give this a try. We think you will really like it.
