Weekly recipe roundup 22
Weekly recipe roundup 22 has appeared, albeit slightly later than planned. The weekend was a bit of a busy one and I got back feeling rather tired on Sunday evening. We stayed with my youngest brother and his wife over other the Easter weekend. We were all well fed and it was rather nice not to be cooking for a bit! Not a huge amount of cooking happened last week, which isn’t the end of the world.
Hot cross buns
I made some hot cross buns last week, the recipe for which you will find here. They are delicious hot and covered in butter, although one can have them cold as well. I only used half of the ingredients that I had listed – I was away at the weekend and didn’t want piles of uneaten food.
Easter Simnel cake
The recipe for this cake you will find over here. It is not a cake I have made too often and keeps changing every time! I put apricots in this time around – they are completely optional, however! Also, I decided to soak the fruit in some rum, this too is entirely optional. I suspect I was treating it slightly too much like a Christmas cake. I managed to upload a correct picture to FoodGawker finally – I am getting used to setting the images to the correct colour profile finally. It is just strange as the first too images I never changed the profile after importing from Lightroom!
