Anyone out there going to make the Hot Cross buns? It's the first bread we are doing as a group and so far it's looking a rather small group of one...

Who else is going to make the buns in the next week or two? What can we do to help you out?

Will be making them soon. As Easter isn't for another few weeks it's just felt too early so far.

Think of it as a "practice run"... then give them away to friends and co-workers. We've been making HCBs at school for about a month now and there are no issues moving them.

Or just skip the cross part and make them just "Hot Buns".

I am making them next week.  See how they go...

I am having problems with my camera interacting with my computer.
So I will also have a go at fixing this during the weekend so I can
upload some photos.
Saludos,

Carlos

Paulo & charliez: no worries, as long as we know you're going ahead. Just wanted to make sure we had a few people on board for this early bread.

I tried to promote the challenge via my blog, but not a lot of people nipped it... We'll see.

Made a few weeks ago - will post later, after I've worked out how!  They were great - I just need a lot more practise in shaping  :woot:

Looking forward to April's bakes.
