Weird Food Combinations that Work...maybe. (We've moved on from Hot Cross Buns)


#1

So far I’ve only had some slightly stale Morrison’s ones, which got stuck in the toaster and would have caught fire had I not been watching them like a hawk.

I think that tomorrow I’ll head to the cathedral and get some Alban Buns, a local speciality, and toast them under the grill on just the inside. Served with salted Irish butter only.

Anyone had any worth photographing yet?

nooooooo_elf


#3

Had some from Simmons last week, tasted fruity.


#4

I’ve been hoovering them down since the beginning of the great mince pie drought. Current favourites were the mini-versions from M&S. Not tried anything bespoke yet though.

Oh, and while I am at it, chocolate hot cross buns are an anathema and can get to fuck.


#5

You have another serving suggestion? :neutral_face:


#6

This is wrong, hot cross buns should be warmed in the oven and consumed spread with ice cold butter while the bun is still hot :heart_eyes:


#7

Please explain how the mini ones are better than the regular ones?


#8

Agree with you on the chocolate. I had some all butter fudge ones this weekend which were akshurly pretty scrummy.


#9

Toast BOTH sides

As for butter, Lou makes mine, salted of course. In fact foo salt - Cornish sea salt flakes


#10

Absolutely no idea. They were nicer than the standard ones though.


#11

Love hot cross buns with a mug of tea


#12

Heretic! Apostate! Infidel!


#13

This thread has gone to shit already…


#14

Nom tho!


#15


Get the behind me Satan.


#16

I bought a Sage toaster recently which has a crumpet setting, toasts the top more than the bottom - how does it know :smile:

Works really well


#17

Ha! Actually, knowing you, you are just being a hot cross bun completeist. :joy:


#18

I have a flask like that. Keeps hot things hot and cold things cold. Amazing


#19

Do hope we will be getting reports on the best ones over the coming 6 weeks with pics.

Fucking butter fudge hot cross buns. Feck’s sake what is the world coming to. There’ll be folk advocating pesto on a fry-up next.
