BUN IN THE OVEN
PERFECT FOR PUDDING, THESE TRADITIONAL EASTER GOODIES ARE THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING
Hot cross buns are mystifyingly on our shelves for more than four months each year, so it’s understandable that by Easter people might want to jazz them up a bit. A good quality bun is all you need. There’s no need to experiment with chocolate, mocha, apple and cinnamon, choc chip or any other dubious derivation. As a rule, I prefer food that is made for sharing. It could be a pot of soup served with a ladle, a pizza torn at the table or a platter of seafood. That said, with dessert, there is something appealing about a plate all to yourself and this is certainly a greedy “it’s all mine” pudding. Offer a jug of extra cream to share if you must.
