I would like to make some hot cross buns, but I can't be bothered to go out to the shop and buy yeast. I have a nice active sourdough starter at home. Any ideas how I can make some decent hot cross buns with sourdough instead of commercial yeast?
Got a good recipe?
Also, any good ideas on how to candy peal with honey instead of sugar?
