Welcome back, and a Happy Easter to you all.
It’s been a busy week here. My mother took a tumble and ended up in hospital. So I’ve been shuttling to and from the hospital sorting out things for her and making sure she’s ok. Like so many people, my parents are getting older but wanting to age in their own homes. But this comes with inevitable risks such as falling over in the garden and not being able to get up.
How long is it since you had Hot Cross Buns? For me, it had been far too long. I tried the ones in the stores but they were just not like the real thing! Too heavy, and not enough fruit or spices.
So, I decided the best thing to do was to make my own. I made them a couple of days ago and have been enjoying a couple each morning for breakfast. The recipe is here. Why not whip some up this weekend so you can indulge in nice soft, buttery Hot Cross buns like all your friends?
And the Celiac Research Keeps on Coming
During the week I read a really interesting article on how researchers have discovered that a seemingly harmless virus, if contracted in infancy seems to trigger celiac disease.
