I don’t celebrate Easter per se, but I’m very happy to eat the food. In the spirit of co-opting feasts and festive food, today I made Hot Atheist Buns, featuring the eye of Sauron. (In previous years I have decorated the tops of the buns with atheist “A”s, and Flying Spaghetti Monsters.)
(Description: Glazed fruit buns, with impressionistic eye of Sauron somewhat obscured by currants and raisins and sultanas and glace citrus peel.)
The little godless atheists in my household are not fond of fruity buns, so I made some fruit free buns, on which the eye is much more disconcerting.
(Description: Glazed plain buns, with distinct eye of Sauron.)
I used a recipe from Butter Sugar Flour. I made a couple of adjustments to her recipe, substituting brown sugar for caster sugar, and adding a couple of tablespoons full of very very very strong coffee, both in order to get brown rather than white coloured buns. And per Steph’s excellent suggestion, I made them freeform rather than cooping them up in a cake tin.
Yummy, yummy, yummy.
