 dough is rising and about to mix in fruit

Bjay, good going . Presumably not too difficult to drag into position?

29/03/2013 at 14:25

Neede 2 to lift it from patio to where it is now. Has to be made on solid surface, but I suppose someone more competent than me could do it in situ.

Only needs an electric drill/driver, holes etc are already done. There is capping to go on.

Watch this space should be finished by end of day

Though probably not in final position

When I made Hot Cross buns the recipe said to put everything in at the start. It wouldn't rise properly and I ended up with Hot Cross rocks. Bjay, I see your dough has risen before you put the fruit in. What about the spice?

Raised beds coming on well.

Afternoon all, had a lovely lie in this morning reading my book, now watching Four in a bed, it does make me laugh, especially the narrator.

Liz - i have followed a new recipe. You do the first rise than add fruit and spice, then another rise and I have just shaped them and they are proving before cooking. If I were to do this recipe again I think I would add the spice to the flour as I have found it hard to get it evenly distributed - in fact it isn't - but I won't tell anyone. It is Paul Hollywoods recipe off the Good Food web site if you are interested

 

This afternoon apart fro the Hot Cross buns I have finished this:

 Will put it in position over the weekend as those big yellow bags have to be moved

Thanks Bjay, I must try that.

Liz & Bjay, I feel inspired now. If my yeast is in date I think I'll make Hot Cross Buns this evening. I love having them for breakfast, reminds me of being a child when we'd come downstairs to the smell of HC buns on Good Friday

29/03/2013 at 16:34

Before we move I used ti make several lots - one went to M and all her little friends, one went round all the neighbours (wonder what they do now) and at least one lot for family and their friends who used to 'turn up' for them

I will give some to my nxt dr n', we are going to daughter tonight (won't be around) and she has text me early this morning about bringing some. Some I will leave for son2 and hopefully some fro me and OH - though I shouldn't really

Have got Fiddler on the Roof on-have no idea why

Glyn-how long are you off for?

Good job there Bjay

29/03/2013 at 16:36
All this talk of hot cross buns reminds me there are some in the freezer. I particularly like them toasted the lots of butter.

Haven't been out all day, feeling very lazy.

Why is Bunny leaving us dangling on 3999?

29/03/2013 at 16:54

perhaps she will blow up if it hits 4000!!

29/03/2013 at 17:00

Just sorry I'll miss the party 

Hot cross bun anyone?
