Its Easter Weekend and in the spirit of being a good little domestic wife I invited my friend, Jen over today to bake some Hot Cross Buns from scratch. (A feat I have never tried before.) Perhaps with all the "Just add milk and eggs" baking I'v been doing over the past couple of years (thanks Betty Crocker) my baking skill have somewhat deminished, or maybe it was just a odd recipe because they turned out looking more like scones then the picture perfect "buns" my mom used to bring home from "Pick 'n Pay" grocery store around Easter time back home.
This is how it all went down:
At this point I was still pretty hopeful. Looking good!
Myself and my sous chef... after a little bit of a flour in the face!
BUT then... they came out the oven. :( No sign of any hot crosses, so I improvised with some white icing.
