Hot Buns

Hello people from google who have come here searching on dodgey search terms. Welcome to a blog post about baking!

I made these same buns two years ago from Delia’s recipe and apart from slightly overcooking these little guys yesterday, they were just as delicious a second time around.

They are meant to be Hot Cross Buns but I forgot to cut crosses in them before letting them rise for the second time and didn’t have time to make posh piped ones so they are simply Hot Buns.

I highly recommend Delia’s recipe. If you are nervous about messing about with yeast and dough I say don’t be! If I can do it, you can too. These buns are a little more time consuming than simply making bread because you have to heat milk, melt butter, measure out more ingredients and so on, but if you have a few hours at home so that you can let the dough rise twice, then it makes for a yummy morning tea.

    They look yummy, I’m printing off the recipe now. And those mini hot cross buns and earrings look pretty cool too.

    Well Miss Loobylu,You even managed to make your Easter Buns Happy! I much prefer them to the cross ones too. We are still ovenless – so no buns for me this year – but IMAGINE what a FUNNY Good Friday YOU will be having!! How very strange that Easter is so early! xx
