In my head, it was brilliant: Hot Cross Bunny Buns for Easter. I’d combine Cooking Light’s lightened recipe of Hot Cross Buns with these adorable Bunny Rolls that have been taking Pinterest by storm these past few weeks.
Umm, not so much.
They turned out looking more like disfigured rabbits or crazed Hello Kitties that are crying (thanks to my extra flourish of drizzled icing.)
Maybe I’ll get a few hits if I post to a Pinterest Fail board.
Anyway, despite their appearance, these hot cross buns are indeed delicious. My only adaptation to the recipe (besides the failed bunny formation) was to use dried plum bits (I’m a fan of Sunsweet Plum Amazins) in place of the traditional dried currents and raisins.
So, I’d still recommend baking these buns and giving them your own bunny twist, which can only be an improvement over my attempt.
I think I’ll stick to my traditional Easter Bunny Sweet Bread when it comes to making rabbits out of dough from now on.
Do you bake anything special for Easter?
