Cooking with Tim - hot cross buns!

Hello, and welcome to another episode of Cooking with Tim! In previous shows, we've learned how to make such classics as 'Takeaway Pizza', '7/11 Meat Pie', and '$1 chocolate bar from the shops just down the road'! Today, we're going to learn a very special recipe - home made HOT CROSS BUNS! And we're going to do it in just three steps!

FIRST - You melt some butter and heat some milk up on the stove. This is STEP 1 - HOT.

SECOND - You add in a whole bunch of flour, yeast, sultanas, raisins, sugar, etc. Then you knead it around for a bit. Here's what the results look like; when you see them, you will emit a cry similar to Homer Simpson.


Now you will be really angry. You have reached STEP 2 - CROSS.

THIRD - you go to the shop and buy them from the supermarket instead. Congratulations! You have reached STEP 3 - BUNS.

Thank you for tuning in to another episode of Cooking with Tim!

UPDATE! -  Of course there is an alternative recipe -

Q: How do you make hot cross buns?
A: Pour boiling water down a rabbit hole.

However, this blog does not endorse cruelty to animals. Also, the buns will be a bit too furry for most people's liking.

Many of my greatest cooking successes are from the supermarket! I recommend it!

(Really did have hot cross buns on the weekend though. Good for the cold weather, even if they were slightly off the Easter mark)
