Celebrating Easter

Having observed 40 days of Lent, we are now in the midst of three of the most significant days in the Catholic (Christian) calendar, referred to as the Triduum Sacrum which starts with Holy Thursday going on to Good Friday, until the Easter Vigil on Saturday evening. Through the Triduum, we literally walk and journey with Christ from the celebration of the Last Supper, to the Agony in the Garden, through the Passion and Crucifixion, unto the celebration and joy of the Resurrection.

From a culinary perspective, the hot topic of Easter must surely be the universally known Hot Cross Buns, which, at the mere mention of the name, brings a catchy tune to mind of how this age-old nursery rhyme used to be sung!

We have a slip of a recipe from a cut out in the scrap book from many moons ago, but now with everything online, we thought we would share with like-minded enthusiasts, the search for the perfect home-made hot cross buns!

For something different, try one of Nigella Lawson’s recipes…. here is one of her regulars that caught our eye – the Easter Egg Nest Cake.

 If anyone has a better recipe for the hot cross buns, do feel free to share with all of us. We take this opportunity to wish one and all, a very Happy and Holy Easter.
