Janet & Cynthia—the Bageladies
Janet— the Baker Kid
All grown up at 7, full of confidence, a Hot Cross Bun recipe and her Mom’s permission (just clean up the kitchen, she said) Janet attempted her first yeast-raised product. Flour everywhere! She double-checked everything, shaped them so pretty, waited patiently for the dough to “double-in-bulk.” From-the-oven, perfection. So proud, she presented her beautiful Hot Cross Buns at breakfast—perfectly shaped, a nice shine, and decorated with carefully placed white creamy crosses. Her HCBs were as hard as rocks and her brothers used them as baseballs.
She was devastated. Mom went over every step. Janet tried again and nothing more could be said of batting practice!
Her love of baking continues to grow beyond “double-in-bulk!”
"I love to bake and want it to be easy for you." – Janet
