look lovely and well made but nothing that contains the devils food called currants can be called nice

Cranberries, dried figs, golden sultanas, mixed citrus peel, dried apricots with the last dregs of a tablespoon or so of currants - all soaked in wine before incorporating in the dough.

Oooh, I love hot-cross buns.
 
Slightly stale hot cross buns.

Cut in half, spread on butter and jam. Put in oven proof ramiken, cover with custard and stick in the oven for about 20 mins.

Hot cross buns make THE BEST bread and butter pudding - even better than panettone!

I'll be making another batch of HCB at easter, when the kids are home.

Easter sunday lunch will be

  • Butternut squash veloute with crispy bacon with FMC, South African Chenin Blanc

  • Pink roasted leg of lamb with rosemary, garlic and smoked anchovy, with a nice mature Pinot Noir or maybe a traditional style Rioja Gran Reserva

  • HCB & Homemade marmalade Bread and butter pudding with a sweet Loire Chenin Blanc
