Made these Hot Cross (and noughts) Bun’s yesterday with the help of my 2 mini master chefs using this ‘Best recipe’. I supplemented half of the plain flour with whole wheat. They were a little bit tougher than store brought ones, but were winners nonetheless.
One of my favourite Easter activities is egg decorating. As children, we’d blow the egg yolks out of the eggs and decorate with shrinkies, paints and stickers. Earlier this week, I made these blue and white ones using some wrapping paper I had saved. Might do a tutorial on them???
And after all that egg blowing, guess what we had for dinner last night?
Also, if you’re catering for a child/ friend who has a dairy allergy/ intolerance- maybe you could give these a try. I decorated Speculatius biscuits with royal icing (made with egg white beaten till stiff and then added icing mixture). The bunnies were drawn free hand using a sandwich bag with a small hole cut in the corner. The eyes and whiskers were painted on with black gel using a toothpick. They were very easy to make, but so effective. Note *these biscuits may contain traces of dairy.
How’s your Easter preparation going? Have you had a Hot Cross Bun yet or some of those Cadbury eggs? or a Malteser bunny?
