Since I was “stuck” at home alone with 2 young kids, with many meals to make from scratch, I had to choose food that can be prepared quickly and easily.
While these no-knead buns are not exactly being prepared quickly, as you’d need to wait for the dough to proof and rise, the no kneading part saved really a lot of time! So you can make these easily too!

You can also make these hot cross buns using the kneading method, which I believe would have a better texture!
