52  Breads in 2013

A life without lemons is like swimming in the nude. You can do it, but it just feels wrong.

A Life Without Lemons is my little blog about food, family and an ongoing love affair with gin and tonic.I am a wife, mother of two lovely (loud, messy, crazy) boys, trained butcher and passionate cook of all things tasty. I moved from rainy England to snowy Canada in 2011 and planned to make friends and influence people with food and gin.

In 2013 I have embarked on a baking mission to make 52 different breads. All of the recipes are from one book- Women’s Institute: Bread. I have no special tools or fancy equipment. Just me, my kitchen and a pre heated oven.

Why not come along for the ride and make some bread……….

#12 Hot Cross Buns {RECIPE}

A hot cross bun is a spiced sweet bun made with currants or raisins and marked with a cross on the top, traditionally eaten on Good Friday. I think I will be making a few batches of these to see us through the Spring Break. They are a little time consuming to make,
but in my book that is what Sunday mornings are for and I love pottering about my kitchen in my PJ’s knocking up something tasty!

TASTE: Delicious toasted and smothered in butter!  They will also make your house smell divine and of course with Easter around the corner if you have never made a hot cross bun before, I suggest you start now-they are fab!
