“Who says you should only eat Hot Cross Buns in April?” asks Alina Niemi of Honolulu Hawaii. “The bread machine does all the hard work, so they make an easy and decadent holiday treat that tastes like you put a lot of effort into them.”
You'll score points when you spoon the halftime meal into these hearty bowls. The bread's spongy texture makes it the perfect container for the creamy full-flavored chowder...or a thick soup, stew or chili.

From Jami Blunt of Hardy, Arkansas, this hearty aromatic bread has just a hint of honey and garlic. She writes, “This is one of my favorite breads. It goes with anything from bologna sandwiches to spaghetti.”
"This bread has a wonderful sourdough taste, but you don't need to bother with a starter," relates Dawn Glynn of Twin Bridges, Montana. "I received the recipe from a friend and now make it more than any other loaf in my bread machine."
