Fairy Princess Rainbow returns home from her seaside vacation!

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

Hello Fairy friends!

It is so great to be back home with all the Fairies in Fairyland. I had a wonderful year living by the sea. I lived in a cute little cottage overlooking the ocean. It was a beautiful view! I swam nearly every day but had to be careful my delicate wings didn’t get soaked.
I spent most of my time painting colourful pictures for my family and friends back in Fairyland. I used all the colours of the rainbow. One of my favourite experiences was when Fairy Princess Seashell visited me and took me to visit her underwater friends. I met beautiful mermaids, fish of all shapes and colours, and even a family of whales. They were so big and magnificent! I hope to go back and visit them all again soon but for now I’m glad to be home 🙂
Love and kisses!!

Easter Bunny gives recipe for Hot Cross Buns!

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

Yes boys and girls, you heard it right! The one and only Easter Bunny gave our very own Fairy Princess Buttons the “very special, very secret, very delicious” (I was quoting the Easter Bunny there) recipe for the Hot Cross Buns he and his mother eat over the Easter period.  Buttons came running to me this very morning, jumping with excitement, telling me all about her visit from the Bunny and how he had imparted the magical gift of his special recipe. She asked me if I could put it up in our blog, so that you can all practise a little before Easter, and maybe make some buns to leave out for the Easter Bunny when he comes to hide some eggs at your house!

Are you ready? Here it is!
750g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
250g currants*
300ml milk
3 eggs, beaten
1 egg, beaten, for glazing
2 sachets dried yeast
2 tablespoons mixed spice*
125g butter
100g brown sugar
Paste for crosses: 1/4 cup flour mixed with a little cold water
– Put the flour, yeast, salt, mixed spice and currents into a bowl and make a well in the centre.
– Melt the butter and add the milk together with the sugar. Warm to blood temperature the same as your fingers – yeast is very temperature sensitive.
– Pour the milk and butter mixture into the well and add the beaten eggs.
– Mix until a soft dough is formed.
– Turn out into a lightly floured board and knead until the dough is very elastic (about 15 minutes).
– Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl and allow to rise in a warm place for about 90 minutes until the dough has doubled in volume.
– Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.
– Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead again for a few minutes.
– Divide the mixture into 12 pieces and form each one into a bun shape.
– Place onto a greased tray and leave for approximately 15 minutes until doubled in bulk.
– Mix together the flour and water for the crosses and pipe onto the buns.
– Brush with egg glaze.
– Bake for approximately 15 minutes and cool on a wire rack.
*Some cooks wanted these ingredients left out.
So, make, eat, and enjoy!!!

Fairy hugs,

The Fairy Queen
(well, Fairy Princess Buttons and The Easter Bunny really!)
Oh, PS: Buttons told me that the Easter Bunny drank Green Tea with her! Fancy that!
