Happy Easter 2020

Just a quick pop in today to see how you are all doing amid the chaos that is life right now.  Please leave me a comment to let me know that my readers are all doing well or, if you’re not doing so good, let me know too as many I can help in some small way.

It’s Easter this weekend!  Feels a bit like a haze doesn’t it?  For me, it snuck up on me and I didn’t even realise until Jenna told me that it was this weekend the day before yesterday. Yikes!

I’m usually much more prepared with HotCross Buns in the freezer and a ridiculous amount of chocolate adorning the pantry.  This year, I can’t even go out to the shops – apart from New Zealand being on lockdown except for essential trips,I’m high risk so am not allowed to leave the house.  Maybe I’ve taken the occasional walk up the street but that’s it for the last three weeks.

So,I just wanted to say, Easter is not very keto but on holidays we usually have treats.  If you’re one of those people, and you’ve got time on your hands (many of us), maybe you might like to make some hot cross buns.  Here’s my Gluten Free Hot Cross Buns recipe.

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you may remember that back in 2016 Idid a hot cross bun recipe review. This Alison Holst Hot Cross Buns recipe won (of the gluten variety) so I can tell you I’ve made it heaps, and will be making it again this year, and it’s the best recipe. So, if you don’t have any issues with gluten, you might like to try this Alison Holst’s Hot Cross Buns recipe.

Why not give it a try.  It’s a fun thing to do with the kids.  It’s really a science lesson if you teach them all about how yeast rises, etc.  I’d love to see pictures of the results, so comment on this post, or I’ll set up a post on my Facebook page so you can add your pictures to the comments.

Happy Easter.  Stay home, stay safe and stay well.
