Here's a recipe from Debbie Woodard printed in DG5
1 C. Milk
2 Eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
2 T. Butter
3/4 C. Raisins
1/2 - 1 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 C. Sugar
1 tsp. Salt
4 C. Bread flour or all-purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp. Rapid or Quick Yeast
1 Egg yolk, beaten with 1 T Water
When dough cycle is completed, remove dough. Break into pieces of dough
about the size of an egg. Roll each piece into a ball and place on a
greased baking sheet. Cover with a towel and place in a warm, draft-free
location for about 1/2 hour. Brush tops with glaze. Bake in a preheated
375F oven for about 25 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool and
then drizzle frosting over tops in the form of a cross.
1/4 to 1/2 C. Confectioner's sugar
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. Vanilla or lemon extract
1-2 T. Milk
Mix ingredients togethe, using enough milk to achieve good consistency.

Hot cross buns are traditionally served during the week preceding Easter,
especially on Good Friday.
