Swing and a Miss
Not written a new post in a while, I've had a lot on my plate but now I'm back! In early preparation for Easter I decided to try taking a swing at Hot Cross Buns. Whomp Whomp.......swing and a......miss. ohhhh so close, they looked great (sorry I forgot to take a picture) the flavour was good, so where did I go wrong? density. That's right, what was supposed to be light, cakey, and dinner roll-esque was heavy and oddly reminiscent of the bread I used to eat while living in Germany. I can't be certain why but I'm assuming I was a little heavy handed with the flour or perhaps I need to practice using yeast more....who knows?! but a re-do is in order! And for any of you reading this.....if you happen to have your own fool proof hot cross bun recipe in your repertoire I would really appreciate the share! thanks!
