Beat well. Set in a warm place until frothy. Melt butter, cool. To the yeast sponge, add remaining sugar, salt, melted butter, and spices; beat in eggs, one at a time. Add 1 cp flour and beat 5 minutes with electric mixer. Gradually add remaining flour, currants, and citron. Turn out onto floured board and knead until smooth and elastic (8-10 minutes). Place ingreased bowl, turning to grease top of dough. Cover with kitchen towel and set in warm place until doubled in bulk. Punch down. Turn out onto lightly floured board and jnead lightly for 2 minutes. Divide dough into 24 equal parts and shape into buns. Place well apart on greased baking sheet.
