Hot Cross Buns

I recently bot a book from Borders on sale for $10 - "the essentials of baking" cookbook..i think. Anyway, in there a recipe i tot looks easy and also quick and appropriate for the coming Easter holidays.  The buns turned out ok, soft on the inside, but the outside is quite hard - which i expected to be like soft though.  Also i think the recipe missed out something..to egg-wash the bun, and also the oven temperature might be too hot at 200C cos  my cross looks like 'burnt' ..hahahaha..or could be i didn't put a thick-layer of the white cross.  

Overall, the buns taste yummy with butter and jam. On it's own, it's a bit plain imo cos of the low sugar content.
