Hot X: Algebra Exposed
About this deal
Take one piece and press down with palm, then use your fingers to gather into a ball, then roll the dough briefly to form a ball. Use a stick, but not one that’s been in the fire, an adult should carefully spread out the wood and embers, so they cool down quickly. Everyone can add any toppings if they’d like them, such as butter or jam, then make sure the Hot Cross Buns have cooled down before you tuck in. Set aside for 15 minutes, then drizzle with sticky toffee sauce and serve warm with ice cream or cream. Whilst traditionally eaten on Good Friday, I like to eat these throughout the run up to Easter weekend, toasted and slathered in butter for breakfast or as an afternoon snack.
You don’t actually need to dissolve it in liquid like I do with the dry, but there’s no harm in doing it and so for the sake of consistency, crumble it in and let stand until it foams up, same as using dry yeast. If someone’s struggling with the baking section of this activity, they could work with a partner, so they can help each other.You’ll be welcomed with a famous Wild Atlantic Irish Gin Bramble before being guided through the wonderful world of mixology with this fun and fantastic experience. Place the sugar and water together in a small pan and bring gently to the boil, allowing the sugar to dissolve. Form into a ball and place in a buttered bowl covered with clingfilm, and leave to prove overnight in the fridge. Add the extra flour if required so the dough comes away from the bowl – the trick is to use the minimum to keep the dough soft so it rises easily (= fluffy buns), but just enough so the dough doesn’t massively stick to your fingers (should be bit sticky though).
If your yeast is past its expiry date OR you’ve kept it in hot humid conditions (instead of fridge or freezer), your dough will not rise. To reheat batches, I pop them on a tray and cover with foil (to avoid the surface getting too crisp), then reheat at 160C/320F for 8 minutes or so. If you are using the packets, you can just use 2 x 7 g sachets, that is 4 1/2 tsp which is slightly more than 1 tablespoon but it works just fine.
As you take the buns out of the oven, brush them with your glaze using a pastry brush while they are still hot. In 2000 he became Tibor Horváth, how is his civil name, the first Hungarian performer on the world famous Love Parade and currently ranks among the leading Hungarian techno artist.
