Rosey... u making yo hot cross buns this year again?
Ah neva mek none last year but mih ole man dih bug mih fuh mek it.
I do them a bit diferent from some people tho.... we grew up with my grand mother doing things the real "english" way LOL
The hot cross buns she use to make use to have a nice little glaze on top when it was done baking that she make the glaze out of confec sugar, lemon extract and milk.
She didn't roll out little pieces of dough to put the cross on it... when she was ready to put the buns in the oven she would take a sharp knife and carefully slash buns with a cross and when they done baking she'd whisk together glaze ingredients, and spoon over buns in a cross pattern.

I will get up early to make them tomorrow... hopefully them come out good... ah nuh mek bun fuhthe longest LOL

I gwein da Vegas da mi ma house fi get hot cross bun. We will hafto settle for salmon today.

1Cup milk
1 little pack of yeast
1/2 Cup sugar
2 tsp. salt
1/3 Cup butter, melted and cooled
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
4 eggs
5 Cups flour
1 1/3 Cup raisins ( i used less)
1 egg white

Glaze
1 1/3 C confectioner's sugar
1 1/2 tsp. finely chopped lemon zest
1/2 tsp. lemon extract
2 Cups milk


-THis usually makes 2 dozen if u do them small but i like them a bit more chuncky so i get like 13 out of the batch.


In a small saucepan, heat milk not too hot.
Fit an electric mixer with a dough hook. ( if u don't have a mixer u can use a wooden spoon to mix)
Pour warm milk in the bowl of mixer and sprinkle yeast over.
Mix to dissolve and let sit for 5 minutes.

With mixer running at low speed, add sugar, salt, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and eggs.
Gradually add flour, the dough wah be wet and sticky, but just continue kneading with dough hook until smooth or yo wooden stick fih about 5 minutes.
Then cover the bowl with plastic wrap or wah clean kitchen towel and let the dough rest for 30-45 minutes.

Then take out the dough and hand knead it until smooth and elastic, for about 3 more minutes.
Then add the raisins and knead until they mix in good.
Shape dough in a ball, place in a bowl, cover it and let rise.

Mek the dough sit at room temperature for about a 45 mins

Get a large baking pan with parchment paper (you could also lightly grease a baking pan, but parchment works better and i still grease the paper).

Divide dough into 24 equal pieces
Shape each portion into a ball and place on baking sheet, about 1/2 inch apart.
Cover with a clean kitchen towel and mek eh rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours.



In the meantime, pre-heat oven to 400° F.

When buns have risen, take a sharp or serrated knife and slash buns with a cross. Brush them with egg white and place in oven. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350° F, then bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes more.

Transfer to a wire rack. Whisk together glaze ingredients, and spoon over buns in a cross pattern.

and Viola! :bravo

Today was such a nice day even though son didn't show up. I know he went to golf and he must have got drunk hahahah...anyway, my friend Martha came over with the biddies....her mom, who is 85 and her aunt Francis (my adobted aunt) who is 96.

I made then nice english tea (loose now, inna teapot) and Martha was quick to grab some buns and put butter and guava jam on them lol......the biddies had a nice time. I showed them some quilts and they looked at all my art and then watch the big tv some and had a good time.....

I was helping Aunt Francis to car, she is extreamly frail...and I felt that I was holding just a shell of a person. I mean it's just bone and skin, it amazing isn't it as we age how we just weather away.
Then I had this strange feeling. I felt that this was the last time I would see her alive.....I didn't feel bad about it or anything....it presented itself just like that, as a plain and simple thought......
