Hot Cross buns
One a penny,
Two a penny,
I caught a glimpse of hot cross buns that Dad bought, laid out on the table. He's very sweet. He goes to church on Sunday mornings and picks up all sort of 'SOMETIMES' food to eat. :-)
Then I had to run into the office to pass some stuff to customers.
At that point, I felt this urge surge through me. "Let's make Hot Cross Buns" the Voice in my head said. "It's Easter week after all."
So off I went on my quest of High Protein/Strong White/Bread Flour. And a quest it was too. Tilting at windmills ala Don Quixote might have been easier. From TMC to Bangsar Village. In and out of the car sifting through the flour section, the organic section. Eventually, I found it in BV. In a clear packet, no big brand like CAP SAUH on it or anything. Just a small little label with a barcode saying "HIGH PROTEIN FLOUR."
*choirs of angels breakout in* HALLELUJAH!
So there we were...High Protein Flour, Orange Sweet Potatoes (for a potato dough), cinnamon, and a pinch of ginger, fruit macerated in brandy and rum, and a modified Brioche recipe for a quintessentially Easter treat. Hot Cross Buns.
Except with the recipe I used, they wouldn't cost 2 a penny! ;-)
And as an aside, if they're not 'Hot' anymore, what do you call them? Chillin' Cross Buns? Cold Cross Buns? Cross Buns? Things that make you go...hmmm...Maybe I should (credit to Allan) call them HAWT Cross Buns ;-)
