Sunday Bunday Baking Challenge - Sweet Dough (Iced Finger Buns)
Today was "Sunday Bunday" Baking Challenge. The theme this week was "Sweet Dough".
I used a Paul Hollywood recipe for my iced finger buns.
In my head, I had something sticky with nuts and lovely flavours. Unfortunately, for some unknown reason the dough just didn't rise how I expected it to, leaving me wondering if I should continue with a bake or not.
If I continued with the theme that I had planned, I could have wasted more ingredients, so I decided to keep it simple and make an iced bun with fresh whipped cream and raspberry jam.
The whole process takes quite a while. I gave it an hour and a half to proove initially, moulded into shape and then a further prove of an hour before a quick ten minute bake, then there was making the icing, whipping the cream and the jam. I didn't make the jam, I strained some Tesco Finest Raspberry jam instead.
I have to say, even though the whole process was a bit of a faff, they actually taste ok, maybe the bread area is a little heavier than it should be but if it tastes ok, then that is half the battle!
