I was sitting on the couch, BoyF about to head off to work, when I decided that baking hot cross buns was how I was going to spend my afternoon. I found a recipe online and, surprisingly, had all the ingredients I'd need in the pantry.
I soaked dried fruit in boiling water, put yeast to work and kneaded and kneaded and kneaded. I gave myself a baking injury too - dropping the camera on my hand as I tried to snap a one-handed photo. ;)
Mum happened to drop in for a cup of tea during the process and provided some welcome photographic support. ;)
The finished product, 18 hot cross buns warm from the oven, quite yummy with some melting butter.
Although I can't see myself making these again soon - store bought hot cross buns are also yummy and a whole lot less work - I'm proudly ticking off this 30 Before Marriage goal:
12. Bake hot cross buns.
