Hot Cross Bun Recipe, Cheesy Prosciutto Cross Buns

I am a stickler for tradition when it comes to hot cross buns.  They are only eaten at our place on Good Friday.  I shudder when I see them the day after New Year’s Eve, along with Easter Eggs, in supermarkets like Coles.  When you can buy and eat them months before Good Friday, they’re no longer special and I feel that the tradition is lost.  Okay, now jumping off my hot cross soap box.

Over the years I have eased my stance on Easter eggs, and you will find a bowl of mini eggs in the kitchen a week or two heading up to Easter.  Since I started blogging hot cross buns too are consumed before Good Friday.  Of course they are only eaten for taste testing of recipes I play around with.  So eating them is sort of considered a ‘have to chore’ and therefore I feel I am still sticking to tradition.  It works in my mind, so let me have that one, please.
