We left our recent visit to the Channel 10 studios to watch The Circle filmed live, with a bag full of baked and baking goodies from Springhill Farm. As Easter weekend was around the corner, I was so excited to use one of the bags of gluten-free bread mix (The Real Bread Mix) to make the same hot cross buns that they had made on the episode we saw filmed – thank goodness hot cross buns are only around for a small portion of the year as they are my weakness. I got online and followed this recipe. It was super easy thanks to my trusty Kitchen-aide mixer, to just put all the ingredients in and the kneading tool did all the hard work.
Now I’m not following a gluten-free diet, but they were yummy all the same. I don’t think it’s such a bad thing to choose gluten-free where you possibly can as flour is probably better off consumed in very small doses.
Did you make hot cross buns this easter? Or did you buy them?
Are you or anyone you cook for on a gluten-free diet? What are your thoughts on this?
