I can't say that I really bother too much about Easter, but I do like Hot Cross Buns, and of course Roast Lamb for supper on the biggish day.
Hot Cross Buns don't exist over here, so Lady Magnon makes ours; and very good they are too.
So, enjoy your Easter, Chag Sameach, and may your buns be as good as Lady M's!
They look goodReplyDelete
They are, I love that special flavour they have.Delete
Chag sameach Cro.ReplyDelete
Thanks you Yael.Delete
You got your hotcross buns! I can imagine you've enjoyed them with a nice cup of tea several times over. So I know you're having a very Happy Easter.ReplyDelete
All the best to you and your wonderful baker. They look delicious
I've only had one so far; yesterday afternoon. She didn't make too many, but we should be enjoying them for a few days.Delete
Happy Easter Cro and Lady M. Made your meatballs last night for supper, blooming delish they were too.ReplyDelete
Someone else made them too last night. I'm pleased you enjoyed them.Delete
Happy Easter. Thank you for the birthday wishes. xxReplyDelete
It's been good so far. Sunshine and quiet; the perfect Easter.Delete
Enjoy your hot cross buns. I'll have to make do with a waffle. However I do have some of the USA's finest pre-crisis maple syrup.ReplyDelete
It HAS to be HCB's here.Delete
Bore da a pasg hapus 🥚🍫🏴ReplyDelete
Turkey here - lots of leftovers so I don't have to think about what to cook for quite a few days! Oh, and chocolate!ReplyDelete
Happy Easter all.
We often keep a Turnkey in the freezer for Easter, but we knew this year that we'd be by ourselves. Lamb it is.Delete
I nearly spat my chateau d'cardboard over my keyboard at your last line.ReplyDelete
Nothing like a good double entendre.Delete
Thanks for reminding me what I forgot. Don't know what's wrong with me. I rarely lose my nerve but going shopping when you know there is a long queue of people waiting for you to get out sets me on edge. On top of which I lost my shopping list. Anyway, this morning, courtesy of your post, I contemplated making them myself, wondering if my bun had sailed. I think it has. What will all the proving it'll be late afternoon before they come out of the oven. Where would we put the Easter roast a couple of hours later?ReplyDelete
Here is the question, not quite Hamlet, does Lady M do Simnel Cake? Neither do I. However, today I shall add a new dimension to "fusion cuisine". My own brainchild. The apostles (marzipan, white) I shall strategically place on one of the easiest, simplest and delicious cakes ever (brown and SWEDISH), a recent discovery.
Happy Easter, Cro,
She did make one once; it was very good too. She followed a Mary Berry recipe. I expect if you type 'Simnel' into my search strip; you'd even find a photo.Delete
Yes, I do remember. Alas, fruit cake lovely as it is (Christmas or otherwise), is too dense for me. Still, by way of comfort or maybe not, the worst of all desserts/cakes has to be that American concoction, Pecan Pie. Think Thanksgiving. It is so sweet it tips into sickly. Even father-of-son's wife (she is American) concedes this to be so.Delete
Anyway, the Swedish concoction plus apostles/disciples went well. Because I tend to give anyone the benefit of the doubt I included Judas too. He was on the periphery. Taking pity on him I swallowed him myself.
I once had Pumpkin Pie in the Caribbean (cooked by an American woman), which was so sweet it made my teeth shiver. It was dreadful.Delete
Any chance of a photo of Lady Magnon's buns?ReplyDelete
Saucy! You have to make do with her alternative set above!Delete
Happy Easter to you. Nice buns!ReplyDelete
Thanks JayCee; and a happy island Easter to you too.Delete
Happy Easter to you and your family.ReplyDelete
Thanks Parsnip, and to you and yours.Delete
Nice looking buns. Only spring vegetables here, being vegan. Very tasty they are too. xxReplyDelete
We shall be having some of the last Spinach from Haddock's this evening. We're almost out of fresh vegs now.Delete
They look very nice, enjoy.ReplyDelete
Happy Easter. xx
Almost Tea Time; I'm hungry already.Delete
Making Hot Cross Buns is no longer my scene but I have bought some rather good ones on my order this week and when they pop up from the toaster and are spread with butter they are good.ReplyDelete
We would normally buy them, but they don't have them here. Lady M is obliged to make them!Delete
Oo, nice Hot Cross Buns! I didn't make any this year as I'm rationing my yeast, haha. I can make 8 loaves of bread with what I'd use for the buns, and I'm not up for getting involved with sourdough again. Such are my priorities these days! Happy Easter!ReplyDelete
I think Lady M used some old yeast for her buns, they didn't rise as much as usual, but are still delicious.Delete
I wonder if it's too late to put them on my shopping list. Need some comfort food right now.ReplyDelete
Knowing England, they'll be selling them until Christmas. Then start again in the new year.Delete
They look delicious. I tried making hot cross buns once and they came our more like little rocks. It was fun trying though.ReplyDelete
If I'd made them, they would have been used for wall construction.Delete
