Easter, to me, is nearly as great as Christmas. It could be just as great if it wasn’t for the fact that there simply are no cheesy Easter songs (maybe there’s a gap in the market?) to sing along to. Whereas Christmas is beautiful with all its lights and wintery festivities, Easter has the kind of loveliness that comes with nature gradually waking up, spring being on its way and Easter lambs populating the rural parts of the country.
Just like Christmas, Easter is a time to get the family together and enjoy some lovely seasonal food. This, of course, is where Hot Cross Buns come in. It’s not Easter without them! A relaxed Easter morning with freshly brewed coffee and buns full of flavour – what could possibly beat that? Add some sunshine (hopefully) and freshly picked flowers and you’re set for a beautifully simple yet tasty start to the day.
So here’s the recipe for these lovely buns, made with the help of a Panasonic Bread Maker. I guarantee you’ll never turn to shop bought Hot Cross Buns after sinking your teeth into these.
