Well Good Friday has come around and how quickly does this seem since I last posted what was incoming for April on Looks Good Lets Eat.
Now to start this Easter weekend could come a variety of options, start eating copious amounts of chocolate; already on it and still feeling good or start baking with the kids, one of my favourite past times.
Baking it is, with intermittent stops for chocolate and we have decided to make a favourite during this period, Hot Cross Buns. The recipe is one I had gotten off BBC Good Food website and adapted slightly as you do after reading the comments. The recipe is by the TV baker Paul Hollywood and I will admit I do like his recipes and he provides some seriously good bread recipes so had faith in this one. The only adaption I made to this recipe was adding more spice to the mix and using a bread maker for the first part of the recipe as seen in the tips section of the recipe.
After what seems a lifetime to a kid, these tasty treats went down a storm once cooked as we had them as a snack this afternoon luxuriously topped with butter. They are that good we are also having them for breakfast tomorrow morning, that’s if Mum and I don’t eat them all.
Hope you all enjoy this recipe too and Happy Easter.
