Happy Easter Weekend to those who celebrate. And just happy weekend to everyone else.
Tradition says that sharing a hot cross bun ensures friendship throughout the year.
As you share your hot cross bun with your friend – chant together:
â€œHalf for you and half for me, between us two shall goodwill beâ€.
Thank you to everyone who has supported and read and visited and commented and linked to Whipup.net so far this year. Since quitting my day job late last year I have been tweaking the site, working on various projects and just generally getting stuff done! One such project is the Action Packs – a Mini-Mag for kids who want to do stuff.
The April issue (issue 2 – Seeds & Beads) includes a bonus Easter Supplement section and this recipe for Easter Buns. Our Easter buns don’t include any fruit – ’cause thats just the way it rolls in our house. But if you are a fan of fruit in your buns than add in a cup of currants or dried cranberries when you add the flour. Or you could also – for a naughty treat – add a cup of chocolate chips. ooh…
These buns are traditionally eaten on Easter Sunday – so get baking!
The instructions also include directions to make a piping bag and pipe that cross shape over your buns.
To purchase the whole of the Action Pack and find out more – go here.
And next month – issue 3 of the Action Pack is ‘Sew & Tea’. And will filled with all things tea related. Plus a bonus Mother’s Day Project!
