Honey Cake

I’m trying to be super healthy at the moment, because operation wedding dress is officially on! But I did make this yummy cake for Mum’s birthday, which doesn’t count (that’s what I keep telling myself anyway!).

Hot Cross Buns

Hot cross buns are my favourite Easter treat by far – in actual fact, I love them so much that I tend to eat them all year round! (They do sell them all year round in Marks and Spencer, which is very helpful.) I did once ask Tom’s Dad, Keith, if he would like a hot cross bun – it just happened to be on the day before Christmas Eve, and being a Methodist minister he found my mix-up of festive foods rather amusing!
