This week I’ve been making double chocolate orange hot cross buns. It’s always nice to have something I can offer unexpected guests and each batch I make keep for several days in a tin (that’s if my family don’t devour them first, of course).
I was in two minds whether or not to ‘mess’ with my traditional hot cross bun recipe. I’m not really a fan of the flavoured ones the supermarkets bring out but there is something quite irresistible about a squidgy bun oozing with chocolate, so I turned my recipe into a double chocolate version and added orange flavourings for an indulgent twist on an Easter favourite.
If you enjoy the chocolate orange flavour combination then you will absolutely love these!
