Hot Cross Buns 2015
Hi TFL folks.
Long time, no post, but I couldn't let an Easter pass without my customary hot cross bun report. First, some eye candy (healthier to indulge via the eyes than scoff these fat-and-calorie bombs, especially if, like me, you allow yourself the indulgence of slathering on the butter - it's fortunate Easter comes but once per year).
As always, made a swag of 'em, and as always these included SD and yeasted versions (those pictured are today's yeasted batch). As per last year, the yeasted were superior to the SD. I've reached the stage where I don't think I can better these babies - they are the best I've tasted and the result of years of experimentation, and tweaks upon tweaks. That said, some batches are inevitably better than others, despite the recipe and baking conditions being more or less identical. That's bakin'!

Cheers all, and hope you've enjoyed a safe and pleasant break.
