Add 1 tbsp lemon juice to a jug with 300ml milk and set aside.
Place 300g plain flour, 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda and 1 tsp cinnamon or mixed spice into a mixing bowl. Whisk to combine.
Stir in 150g mixed dried fruit.
Use your hands to make eight small rolls and place on the prepared baking tray.
Put 2 tbsp plain flour into a small bowl and slowly add cold water, stirring as you add it until you have a thick paste. If it's too watery add more flour.
Use a piping bag or the back of a teaspoon to make cross shapes on the top of the buns.
Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
Serve warm with your favourite spreads. These soda bread hot cross buns are best eaten fresh but will keep for a day in an airtight container. Can be cut in half and reheated under a grill.
