Don’t have time to make proper hot cross buns? These hot cross bun cupcakes are easy to make and are a great spin on classic hot cross buns which are often eaten and shared around Easter time. With a soft, fruit packed cake sponge and a sweet marzipan cross to finish the look, these hot cross bun cupcakes take all the flavour elements of the Easter treat and transfer them to a cupcake. If you don’t have apricot jam you could always use marmalade instead. Other dried fruits such as apricots and cranberries work well in this recipe too so experiment to your taste.
