Hot Cross Buns & Drop Scones
|Joan's had pieces of apple in them|
|Mine had mixed spices|
Two different recipes were followed for hot cross buns with work starting at 10:30am. Both recipes were followed to the letter. Joan followed Paul Hollywood and I followed Mary Berry. Joan's were ready by 4:15pm whilst mine came out of the oven at 6:20pm. All the waiting for rising and proving took FOREVER!!! Both had different twists and both were really lovely but different. Moral: allow a lot of time!! It was surprising how much better they looked after applying a glaze.
During the long waiting times, we made two batches of drop scones - sweet and a cheesy savoury version which we ate for lunch with strawberry jam and guacamole.
