I get a little hot cross bun obsessed at this time of year. You know those people who complain about hot cross buns being in the shops straight after Christmas? I’m not one of those people. I start eating hot cross buns WAY before Easter.
Easter is such a great excuse for baking and eating generally. I find the few days off work give a bit of time to get in the kitchen and after all this is a holiday where you are given licence to eat as much chocolate as you want. One of my favourite guilty eating pleasures
Hot Cross Buns are so good that it’s a shame they are only available around Easter. Sometimes I make my own hot cross buns but otherwise it’s a case of maximising the hot cross bun eating opportunities in the lead-up to Easter. One way to do this is by making a bread and butter pudding
