juliet: (food - roast potatoes!)
Have just finished making vegan hot cross buns.

Conclusion: not bad, but despite doubling the recommended quantities of spices, could still do with a bit more; also a pinch of salt (I was surprised at the exclusion & should have just put it in anyway). I'd put a bit more dried fruit in, as well, although [livejournal.com profile] marnameow disagrees.

Also: sachet yeast != dried yeast, so the first go at rising didn't. Mixing in some more actually activated yeast solved that problem, though.

Also to get the tops looking smoother I should have done the thing where you spin the balls of dough before their final rising, to pull the top tight.

I need a baking icon.
