My original plan was to make all the recipes in the BBC GoodFood Calendar for 2014. I have done well so far – three meals for three months. But somehow I failed when it came to April’s recipe.
It is these Hot Cross Bun Cupcakes.
There were multiple reasons for the failure. I had a health episode the week before Easter wherein I lost all energy (the trip from my bed to the kitchen felt a mile long. It is in the next room.) and did not feel like shopping and baking.
When I went home for Easter and thought I might be able to tempt my sisters into accompanying me, I was informed that hot cross buns are not nice to eat, and that I shouldn’t make them.
And thus, the Easter is over, and any point in making the hot cross bun cupcakes is really also over for this year.
A 75% success rate in the calendar so far.
They look yummy… You still have a few days left of April, though?
But they’re really an Easter thing… Maybe next year?
