Have you ever tried to make hot cross buns before? If you’re not an experienced baker, they’re kinda hard work. Who could be bothered?

These Hot Cross Muffins are our simple-as-pie version, and they’re impossible to mess up.

Guy likes to soak his dried fruit in chai tea, so if you’ve got the time just brew a mug of black chai and let your dried fruit soak for at least 20 minutes. Make sure you drain the tea before adding to the mix.

If you want these muffins to have a little spice add 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of mixed spice. Yum!

  • 225 g yoghurt
  • 60 g butter melted

  • Add a good lug of oil to the frying pan and fry the red onion and garlic over a medium-low heat until softened and golden. Add the cumin and coriander powder, then stir and cook for another minute.
