Hot Cross Buns

It’s Easter – so I thought, why not make some hot cross buns. I’ve made them before, but not for a couple of years.  I’d forgotten now good home made hot cross buns are.

It’s so good with saucy dishes like chilli or spaghetti bologneise and whilst it’s not for the dieters, in my opinion, it’s well worth the calories! Continue reading “Terrific tear and share bread”

Cinnamon rolls

I first made these cinnamon rolls on a Christmas bread making course. They are super sticky but very easy to make. My hubby fell in love with them and once you taste them I’m sure you will too. Continue reading “Cinnamon rolls”
