One a penny, two a penny hot cross buns. Yep, it’s that time of the year again. Easter’s just around the corner and everyone’s excited about the long weekends and good food. The chocolate, the bunny shaped treats and of course the traditional hot cross buns. Filled with dried fruit, big juicy raisins, and all finished off with the perfect amount of spice. They’re warming, sweet and always taste best toasted with a light slather of butter.
I once read that if you’re buying gluten free food then you should aim to buy the one that has as little ingredients as possible; with 6 or less being the ideal number. But when you look at gluten free bread, you’ll be lucky if you find one that doesn’t have about 20 ingredients, is pumped full of rice and normally contains some form of molasses or another strange addition. The massive amount of random ingredients, combined with the strange candy floss texture which coats your mouth, makes for a loaf that is not very nice!
Who doesn’t love Easter? It’s the perfect excuse to indulge. A four-day weekend just screams short vacations, lazy mornings and of course delicious food. Late brunches, scrumptious desserts, and dinners worth sharing with as many people as you can rally together. For most people, that includes more than your fair share of chocolate. It comes part and parcel with Easter, and let’s be honest… It wouldn’t be right unless you had at least one choccy egg.
