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!!!

(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!

Fairy Roses for Christmastime!

Friday, December 12th, 2008

Hello little Fairykins!

Christmas is just around the corner and I’m so excited! My special Christmas roses are helping me make a lovely carol for our Fairyland Christmas party – all the birds, animals and flowers will sing for the other fairies. Fairy Princess Fairy Floss is making gingerbread and candy cane flavoured fairy floss and it’s just scrumdiddliumptious! Fairy Princesses Rainbow, Butterfly and Sparkles have been decorating the Christmas tree at Crystal Castle and it looks just magical!

I’ve got some fabulous shoes for our Christmas party. They are pink and sparkly and with each step I take they play music – such fun! The silkworms that live at the bottom of the garden are spinning silk for my dress – so nice of them! I’ve been very busy wrapping presents for all the fairies and my animal friends. Cinnamon the rabbit and I have just been talking and we think the nicest thing about Christmas is all the lovely smiles. Make sure you give lots of smiles away this Christmas – it makes a fairy feel tickled pink!

Well must go sweet peas – Fairy Princess Stardust and I are giving a concert for Santa’s elves – they’ve been working so hard we’d thought they’d like a little music.

Lots of Love,

Fairy Princess Rosebud

Christmas Fairy Floss!

Friday, December 5th, 2008

Hello my little Fairylings,

Well as you know it is busy, busy, busy in Fairyland especially at this time of year – there is so much to do! I am making all the Fairy Floss (in assorted flavours) for the Crystal Castle Christmas Party and there are so many different types! I have to make over 100 different batches!

I am making little bunches of Fairy Floss clouds for each of the Fairies for Christmas – I got some beautiful crystal ribbons from Fairy Princess Crystal and some magical floating dust from Fairy Princess Stardust. I also have to make a special giant cloud for the Fairy Queen – in her favourite flavour; lemon gelato with watermelon sprinkles!

I have also found the most perfect dress thanks to Fairy Raine and Fairy Princess Rainbow! It is made from the most delicate little rain droplets resting on tiny little rainbows which makes it reflect so many beautiful colours! For shoes, since green is my favourite colour, Fairy Princess Jade whipped up some gorgeous jade shoes that match the green in the rainbows perfectly!

Oh it is such an exciting time – do you know that more that getting presents – I love giving them? My favourite present to give is a hug – everybody loves hugs and everybody needs hugs! So make sure you help Santa spread Christmas cheer by giving someone a hug and saying Merry Christmas!!

Well I must rush Dewdrops, I have lots to do and only so many hands to do it with – and OH NO! Thumper my beautiful fluffy pet bunny has gotten into the Fairy Floss maker – he is all sticky! Now I really have to go – he needs a bath *laughing*.

Merry Christmas Fairylings!

Love and bear hugs!

Fairy Princess Fairy Floss
