The Sweet Spiciness of Hot Cross Buns!

Written by Gaynor Mairs on 21 March 2018

Apples are a great source of Vitamin B and C. Rich in dietary fibre, they should always be eaten with the skin on. Eat as is, add sliced to a peanut butter sandwich, serve with dips or as dessert with natural yogurt.

Most people love the sweet spiciness of hot cross buns! With Spring in mind I have created my own ‘cake’ version. There is little preparation required in getting it into the oven. Delight in a treat whilst benefitting from the vitamin D in the egg yolks as well as the Calcium in the almonds. It will stay fresh if kept airtight for 2-3 days. Indulge in a slice with a coffee in the Spring sunshine, weather permitting!
