During Easter and a few months leading up to Easter, the shops started selling hot cross buns.
Dolu2 cuma ada traditional hot cross buns aje yang dijual which are the spicy with dried sultanas variety.
But sekarang ni, dah macam2 jenis hot cross buns you can find at the shop, from the traditional to the non traditional varieties.
Like the caramel and date hot cross buns, the craisins and mixed peels hot cross buns, the chocolate hot cross buns, the no fruit hot cross buns….
So, since cuti panjang, I pun diminta lah dek The Other Half membuat hot cross buns semalam.
So, bangun tidur I pun terus lah membuat nya.
He said he wanted the version with loads of spices and also only sultanas.
Miss 13 pulak tak berapa suka that version because she doesn’t like sultanas much.
So I had to make the non spicy without any sultana version which is basically normal sweet buns lah.
But instead of making the normal sweet buns, I made for her chocolate with choc chips hot cross buns.
I made this version of hot cross buns but I followed all the comments and increased the spices to 3 teaspoons each and I soaked the dried fruits in hot water for a few minutes to plump them up.
Rupa the buns sebelum masuk oven.
Instead of crosses, I made squiggles cos I made too much of the paste, hehehe…..
And selepas dimasak. I cuma letak sugar syrup glaze aje instead of jam glaze.
I campur sultanas and currants.
And sebelum masuk mulut The Other Half.
And the choc versions.
I used a mixture of dark, milk and white choc chips and I added a bit of cocoa to the dough mixture. I guna the same recipe as above but I tak letak spices nor fruits.
And then, they wanted cheesy pizza for dinner but I told them that I’ve had enough kneading for that day.
Malas I nak membakar and makan roti lagi!
So, I made jemput2 udang and kuah kacang aje….
But untuk I, I buat ala2 rojak/gado gado, penuh dengan sayur.
baru lah I perasan macam makan benda berkhasiat kan, padahal takde nya healthy mana with goreng2 tu!
