Ooey-Gooey Cinnamon Buns
okay. this is the first time I am making bread and to be honest, My rolls are a flop. they did not rise and had the texture of half cooked pasta. But they tasted sooo good! I think what went wrong was during the proofing! I used hot water from the boiler and that must have killed the yeast! Will try again because I am sure I will get it right!

Battenburg Cake
okay this is absolutely biased because this is the only battenburg i'd ever tried. All my English friends loved it and it was really easy to make! Variation: Try flavouring the pink parts with strawberry essence and using strawberry jam! The result is amazing! YOu get a vanilla strawberry battenburg with delicious strawberry jame. Simply divine!

Scottish Shortbread II
This, according to my half scottish half english bf is spot on! I screwed up by overbeating the butter and my dough was sticky and soft, not stiff. Nonethless, I sprinkled some flour and kneaded it in by hand to form a slightly less sticky dough. I did not modify the proportions patted it into a 9.5inch spring form and it was perfect. I baked it at 300f or 150 degrees but it was slightly overbaked at 40mins. Next time I'll stick to 30mins. Other than that,I sprinkled about three tablespoons of sugar when it was cooling. I also used salted butter all the way, which gave it an interesting salty and sweet flavour. Next time I'll use half salted, half unsalted. Other than that, when I brought it to my bf's office, it was gone in minutes!
