Votive Offering - Delayed
I made Hot Cross Buns today. OK I know I am three weeks late, but I have a good reason- the oven was bust and took three weeks to get repaired (under guarantee). Of course by that time Easter had come and gone. To make amends I bought some expensive hot cross buns on Good Friday from an artisan bakery at over £1 each. Either by accident or design they had no fruit in them aside from some candied peel. It didn't pass muster with family. So today I gave in to the request for "the real thing" and baked this batch.
I am happy to report that they passed the taste test.
The top picture also shows off our new kitchen table covering. Doesn't that hen look peckish?
