Snow joke

Apologies for the lack of posting on this blog for a while - We've been snowed in for the last five days. As a result I've not been able to get any ingredients!

Normal service will resume - once the white stuff takes a short break!

Bun, de Bun bun BUN!

The advantages of long Sundays at home...

This recipe has been lifted from one of those booklets you pick up in the super market. Not quite sure why it appealed - possibly the use of yeast and the need to fit it around other cooking exploits. Anyhow, you can pick up the whole recipe at Waitrose.

A few tips for success though:

  • Don't leave the initial yeast mixture more than 2 hours.
  • Expect to get very messy
  • When inserting the paper into your muffin moulds, use clean fingers, or, as you can see from the picture, you get crap all over them
  • Use lots of vanilla sugar on the top

This recipe isn't the quickest, or the easiest, but the results are worthwhile. I'll attempt them again, this time with the points above taken into account!
