….. one ha’penny, two ha’penny, hot cross buns!

The monumental effort that is hot cross buns. Here is a warning, do not start baking these if you have plans to go anywhere in the next 24 hours. I didn’t realise they need three separate proving sessions of an hour each time.

So surprise surprise I adapted the recipe a little bit… in that my buns had the first two proving sessions, then Daddy Bear shaped them into what he thought were ball shapes -I’m not sure how you get to 27 and don’t understand that balls are spherical- and left them for a couple of hours (not the 60 minutes suggested).

Later, I came home and delivered a lesson on the concept of a sphere, re-shaped them and left them to prove over night… they actually turned out really well. Although I’m pretty sure Paul Hollywood would be shaking his head in disgust at my lack of consideration for the ‘science of baking’.

Also whilst we’re at it Mr Hollywood, I didn’t put any chopped apple in. Or mixed peel. Oh and I glazed them with melted marmalade. What a rebel.

Pinterest has not let me down for once – Big Bear and Baby Bear (and even Daddy Bear) have loved having Bunny-Butt pancakes for breakfast this morning.

P.S the most awesome pancake recipe ever is here.
