Make this traditional favourite in the bread machine or by hand. Mouth-watering and tummy-rumbling guaranteed!


1.Program bread machine for manual or dough cycle. When cycle is complete, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide into 15 pieces and form into buns. Place in a grease 9” x 13” cake pan. Let rise in a warm place for 40-50 minutes. Cut a cross on the top of each bun with a sharp knife.
2.Bake at 350°F for 20-25 minutes. Remove from pan onto a cooling rack.
3.If baking an Easter Bread, program the bread machine for regular bread cycle and light crust setting and allow to bake in the machine.
4.* If you wish, trace a cross on each bun with white frosting made with ½ cup icing sugar, 1 ½ tsp milk and a few drops of lemon juice. Adjust consistency if necessary.
