52 Cookbooks #15: Hot cross buns

I'm staying with Delia again this week and have taken this recipe from her Complete Cookery Course, which is probably the oldest cookbook I have and has been used over many years as a reference (cook)book to check against other recipes and to answer the question "what does Delia say?"

This edition was published in 1984 - I told you it was old - and somewhere along the way I've lost the cover; the book's also a bit crinkled from getting wet at some point but otherwise it still works!

It is quite dated though, which is now part of its charm... For example the next recipe is 'pizza' nothing unusual about that but each time pizza is in quotes, I guess in the early eighties pizza wasn't quite so common place!
