These look a bit like traditional hot cross buns (without the crosses)...a recipe I am currently trawling for.  (anyone have a good traditional british hot cross bun recipe?)

These look stunning! What recipe did you use?

Floyd posted a recipe we use every year for the buns here:

hi just wanted to say thanks. i wanted to make some bread with dried fruit in it for the kids. i made floyd's recipe from the link above but doubled the recipe it was a huge hit! the buns were the sweetest and lightest i'd ever made, they looked so professional people kept asking if they were really home made.

i tried to pipe icing but it was a big disaster so i just drizzled icing over with a spoon. beautiful recipe.
