Hot Cross Buns

LinkToday we made a big batch of hot cross buns using our favourite teacake recipe. We slashed the tops in the shape of a cross, rather than using dough crosses because I always end up picking them off anyway.

They were quite delicious toasted with a cup of tea after an afternoon spent tidying up the garden.

We have been working hard all week so we are looking forward to our weekend off which will be spent baking, gardening and relaxing (and no doubt planning the next print...).

Here we are working from home together in the dining room

This is our Easter egg tree made with some greenery from the front garden ...

...and some sweet little egg decorations from John Lewis.

It was really sunny for most of the day, so we took advantage of the nice light to take some photos of our leather bound journals to list in our Folksy shop. This is our favourite photo, white paper with a few pastel coloured pages.

Have a lovely weekend! I just had to nab one of your journals from folksy, my hubby lost his last week (he left it on the car roof and then drove off - says it all really!) hopefully he won't lose this one :)

Thanks Kate - hope he enjoys using it!

Hope you have a good weekend too :)

I think I need to look at the tea-cake recipe - my HCBs turned out rather solid!
