Its quite some time since my recipe for Khorasan Breakfast buns was first published on Shipton Mill's site. Today I just felt like baking them again...but I had to cycle out to Mick Smith's to get half a dozen jars of honey. The buns don't need that much, its just that I like to have a little stash in my cupboard, as we have a little each day, and we did not have any runny honey left.
I had another set back when making these...I ran out of fennel seeds so had to go out and get some more. For the final trial, I was faced with having to throw out all the ingredients as I cracked an egg over the whole of the ingredients including the honey, and the egg was off!
Usually I crack the eggs one at a time into a dish, then decant them or separate them as required by the recipe. Recently I had been watching all the chefs and Mary Berry just crack the eggs straight in, and was beginning to think I was far behind the times. I shall go back to my old ways again. The free range eggs were bought from Sainsbury's and were well within date...but I guess one bad egg over many years isn't too bad. The whole lot went into the recycling bin, and everything washed down thoroughly..with a little bleach before I started up again.
