1 Day Sweet Doughs (Easter)


Course Description

Celebrate Easter with memorable Hot Cross Buns, the Russian Easter bread called Kulich, and a plaiting session that will set you up to make a typical Greek Easter plait, with the red egg at its centre. On this course you will make these gorgeous Easter breads along with Devonshire Splits and Chelsea buns, with the focus on learning about handling yeast skilfully as it encounters difficulties fermenting these rich and sugary doughs.
