“52 Breads in 2013” – #5 SWISS BUNS {Guest Blogger}

Please join me in giving a warm Canadian welcome to “Life without Lemons”.  Originally hailing from the UK and now living in Canada, we are very excited to announce that, Elyse with her fabulous “52  Breads in 2013” will be our weekly guest blogger.  If you are looking for some fabulous bread recipes, drop by each week and see what delicious bread Elyse has baked in her kitchen.

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……….

“52 Breads in 2013”


Step into any bakery in the UK and you will see little finger buns covered in white icing. They are simply delicious and I always found an excuse to buy one as a treat. We called them Iced Buns and after flicking through my bread book I saw the title Swiss Buns and once I read the recipe I quickly realized they are Iced Buns- yeah!

It was a nice change to go for a sweet bread this week and the kids certainly enjoyed helping to ice the buns.

You could add some food colouring to the icing if you like, but in my mind they should always be white just like the many I have eaten over the years!



TASTE: These soft bread rolls covered in yummy icing are so good and bring back so many memories for me.  The kids loved getting involved too.  Just  be warned, my youngest simply licked the icing off three rolls, leaving soggy, licked bread all over the kitchen!
