I love Hot Cross Buns. My whole family loves them! We love them so much that we actually whenever we go to the UK take back like two dozen of Hot Cross Buns. In Switzerland we can’t get those delicious buns so it was high time to bake some of my own.
You need: 200 ml milk, 55 g unsalted butter, 14 g dried yeast, 455 g bread flour, 1tsp sea salt, 1 tsp mixed salt, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 whole nutmeg, 55 g caster sugar, 2 tbsp plain flour, 85 g raisins, runny honey
For Easter we always have a big brunch with the whole family. Apart from the fruits, meat, cheese, salmon, bread, croissants and jams I like to do some avocado on toast with a poached egg and not to forget the bacon (yummy).
I love to season my avocado with salt, pepper and a little paprika. Then I go on to putting some of it on a bread, poach an egg and fry up some bacon. It’s the perfect combination. It also works really well with some salmon instead of the bacon.
We had a lovely time and everybody loved the Hot Cross Buns. My sister alone ate like 5 of them. It was such an easy recipe and although you have to let the dough prove twice, which takes time, other than that you don’t have to do much. And have a look at the beautiful eggs my grandmother did for our Easter brunch.
So what do you do on Easter? Do you have any traditions? With us it has always been this way. I like that we come together and just enjoy each others company whilst indulging in some great food.
I hope you had a lovely Easter too and thanks for stopping by. Don’t forget to subscribe on Bloglovin or via email so you’ll be the first to know about my new posts. xx
