Nanny Nettie-Kin's Tasha Tudor Hot Cross Buns and Bobby!

Bobby Loves Tasha Tudor Hot Cross Buns and Goat's Milk!
Nanny Nettie-Kin made Hot Cross Buns using the receipt in "The Tasha Tudor Cookbook". As we mentioned back in our "Forget-Me-Not Fair" post, little Bobby was a problem for Nanny at Hot Cross Bun baking time. This is Part Two of "Nanny Nettie-Kin Makes Tasha Tudor Hot Cross Buns"... including little Bobby.

Some of these photographs were taken last year (2014) but we have not posted them here at the Corgyncombe Courant until now.

As Nanny's back is turned, busy with putting some of her spices away, Bobby whispers to little Hitty "Nanny Nettie-Kin won't miss any of those buns."
"Bobby, they look good but maybe you shouldn't take them!" replies little Hitty.

"Nanny won't see or hear me!" Bobby whispers.

Bobby goes over to the chair and starts dragging it across the floor.

Bobby keeps a keen eye on Nanny. The chair makes scraping noises as Bobby drags it closer to the table.... squeeeak.

Bobby climbs up on the chair as Nanny turns around and exclaims "Robert! It's not nice to take Nanny's hot cross buns!"

Under her elbow, Bobby watches Nanny Nettie-Kin squeeze icing onto the hot cross buns.

Whilst the Hittys have their buns and milk, Nanny Nettie-Kin decides to have a little one-on-one talk with Bobby along with goat's milk and hot cross buns.

Sporting a milk mustache, Bobby states "But Nanny, I'm just a growing boy!"
Nanny Nettie-Kin sighs...

Some of the photographs and some of the writings on this post are from previous Corgyncombe Courant posts that can be found here on the Corgyncombe Courant and from our previous postings elsewhere on the internet.

The buns have been frosted with a cross on top.
