  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease a 3 qt. baking dish and set aside.
  3. Simmer, in a small sauce pan,over a medium heat all of the ingredients for the rum raisins. Remove from heat and transfer to a bowl and allow to cool.
  4. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, salt and cinnamon. Add oil, brown sugar, and egg. Mix well until well incorporated. Add the milk, half cup, at a time until a fine dough comes together. Add rum raisins and mix with your hands.
  5. Turn the dough onto a well-floured surface and knead until it all comes together and is smooth.
  6. Pull the dough apart making pool ball sized buns; the dough should make about 1 dozen hot cross buns.
  7. Brush each bun with an egg wash (1 egg white + 1 teaspoon milk or water).
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden.
  9. Remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack.
  10. While buns cool, whisk confectioner's sugar, vanilla and milk to make a glaze. Add more sugar or milk until you get a thick consistency.
  11. Drizzle a cross pattern over each bun.
  12. Let the glaze set before serving.
  13. Enjoy with butter, cream cheese or jam!
