RECIPE: Looking for Hot Cross Buns - very light & yeasty
I can't find a recipe for Hot Cross Buns that suggests what I want, which is, very light & yeasty. I'd buy them in a store or bakery but bakeries are gone forever it seems and grocery stores that "bake" have sort of heavy things, more like scones. I have never been very good with yeast breads but a pro once told me that the yeasty taste which is missing so much these days comes from not enough yeast and not enough rising time. Every spring, Lent, I think of giving it another whack if only I had a recipe.
