Originally posted last Easter, I thought I’d repost this as I will for sure be using my hot cross bun recipe again this week – and I hope you will too! There’s nothing better than a hot cross bun to me. They’re sweet, they’re buttery and they remind me of spring like nothing else does. […]

Ginger & Almond Shortcake Slices

There’s nothing I like more than spending a cold winter afternoon, in a warm and inviting kitchen, baking a festive sweet treat of some kind.
