Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

  • veronicafrance on April 07, 2012

    Why is this recipe in Delia's winter book? Heaven knows. Anyway, my results were good; I'd make two changes next time: 1. Make the dough a little softer, either by adding more water or substituting some plain flour for part of the bread flour, so that the buns rise better; it was a little too firm and hence took longer than advertised to rise. 2. Use almond paste for the crosses. The flour and water paste Delia uses comes out terribly tough, bordering on inedible.
