Hot Cross Buns: Take Two

Determined to eat my own home-baked hot cross buns this year, I gave them a go again yesterday. Despite my flat and doughy mess of the day before. Even though I knew what my initial mistake was (attempting to cook them at 200 degrees.....farenheit) and that this was an easy enough fix, I was secretly scared that I was just crap at making hot cross buns. So I tried not to get too excited.

But look!

I used Pip's fantastic recipe, found over here. I loved following it, especially as part of the method was 'go back to bed for about an hour' or 'Knead together with springy, spirit fingers...' Haha, too good. It was easy to follow, worked like a charm, and now we have delicious treats to go with our tea. What more could a girl want?
