Easter, though perhaps not quite to the extent of Christmas, is a time for celebration and giving thanks for what you have.

Hot Cross Buns
What would a list of Easter cakes and bakes be without mentioning hot cross buns? Though there are many varieties now available in shops, including chocolate & fudge, apple & cinnamon, and Earl Grey & Mandarin, we still love the traditional currants & raisin hot cross buns; and in our mind it would not be Easter without them. You don't get to have them that often so we prefer not decorate hot cross buns, but don't let that stop you from experimenting and sharing the results with us on Facebook.
