  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
DOUGH
3/4           cup  milk
2              large  eggs
1/4           cup  butter
1           teaspoon  salt
3 1/3           cups  bread flour
3        tablespoons  sugar
1           teaspoon  lemon peel -- grated
1/4      teaspoon  nutmeg -- powder
2          teaspoons  bread machine yeast
FRUIT MIX-IN
1/4           cup  currants
1/4           cup  candied pineapple -- chopped
GLAZE
1                     egg white
1         tablespoon  water
ICING
3/4           cup  powdered sugar
1/2      teaspoon  vanilla extract
3        tablespoons  milk

Add all of the DOUGH ingredients to your  bread machine pan in the order
suggested by the manufacturer. Select dough/manual cycle. When cycle is
complete, remove dough from machine to a lightly floured surface. Knead in
currants, pineapple, plus enough flour (if necessary) to make dough easy
to handle. If dough is too elastic, cover and let rest 10 minutes before
shaping.

Divide dough into 12 equal pieces; form each piece into a smooth ball.
Place on large greased baking sheet. Cover; let rise in a warm,
draft-free place until almost doubled in size, 15 to 20 minutes. With
sharp knife, cut a shallow cross in the top of each bun. Lightly  beat
GLAZE ingredients together and brush over the tops of the buns. Bake at
375 for 15 to 18 minutes or until done. Remove from  sheet; cool on a wire
rack. Combine icing ingredients and place in a  pastry bag with
small round tip or a produce bag with a small section of one of the sealed
corners cut (cut after putting in the icing. Pipe a cross of icing on top
of each bun. (Or drizzle buns  with Icing.)
