Dark days don't always mean winter; sometimes you just have a head like a pan of broth and you need to lighten it up. No better way than bread making. Normally it's just straightforward white loaf, but can be a little more exciting if the mood/need is there!
One of the books I use regularly is Scandilicious baking and as everything was to hand, vanilla buns it was.
Worth it for the smell in the house alone, but they are so light, not too sweet and perfect with sour cherry jam.
Perfect antidote to a pan of broth.
