Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Hot cross buns with dried fruit and two glazes

    • ncollyer on April 19, 2019

      Delicious reliable recipe that I return to every year for this Easter treat. Really good toasted with butter.

  • Lemon-ricotta coffee cake

    • dinnermints on April 12, 2020

      Stunning and delicious; the lemon flavor really comes through. I added another 2 T flour to the filling; maybe it was looser because I could only source part-skim ricotta rather than whole milk. For braiding the first loaf, I followed the recipe's instructions, and it was a bit, ah, overly rustic. Then I found an online tutorial (Danish Pastry Braid with Almonds : Wild Flour - YouTube) and instead of 2" diagonal, cut 1" straight strips, and that worked far better. The end result was a bit dry-looking, so I followed the Wild Flour instructions and brushed them both with an apricot glaze (apricot preserves heated and then strained), and that really fancied them up.
