Use of the Breadmaker dough selection to make hot cross buns.

Just made some 'Not Cross Buns' as i could not be bothered with piping crosses !
Made a loaf of it too !
Turned out well using Paul Hollywoods recipe but substituting marmalade for the peel and sugar ! :)

Soft rolls but the tops were quite crisp. You put a teatowel over them while they cool

Made wholemeal knot and rolls today. Tried to upload pics but says they are too big, even after cropping. Don't know how to compress them on iPad 🤔

CompostQueen - when you email an image from your iPad to another computer (or to yourself on that same iPad), you can resize the copy before sending it.

Open Photos, select the image(s) and then select Mail. Look to the right of the CC/BCC line where it says "Images: X.XMB". Tap that and you can then select from "Small/Medium/Large/Actual Size".

I hope that helps?

The secret of getting holes in ciabatta, is to handle it as little as possible after the first rising. After kneading, I put my dough into a large rectangular Tupperware type container. When it's risen, I tip it out onto a board cut it in two then carefully transfer it to a tray for baking, after giving it an hour or so to rise a bit again. Certainly, do not "knock it back ". The idea is to keep as much air in it as possible.
We come from the earth, we return to the earth, and in between we garden.
