No-Fuss Hot Cross Buns.

Sunday 2nd October 2011

Mum has been getting cooking magazines for years. They used to have them in a rack by the cashier in the supermarket. For as far back as I can remember she has popped a copy of ‘Family Circle’ & ‘Woman’s Weekly’ in the trolley, every Wednesday, along with her weekly shop. Not strictly cooking mags but they gave the modern mother a few ideas about what she could be cooking for her young family.

Times have changed & along with the boom in home cooking, over the last 20 years, has come an extensive range of culinary literature. The popularity of such magazines has reached a point where each supermarket, in the UK, publishes their own food based periodical.

Mum has always used them for inspiration. Trying out new recipes & passing them on to my sisters & I if they’re any good. She often brings them over, when she visits, for us to peruse together.

I found this recipe in the ‘Good Food Magazine‘ while looking for ideas for what to make for Zephy to take to school as a morning snack.

They came out of the oven just before we sat down for dinner.

“Can I have one?” Asked Zephy staring wide eyed at the warm buns.

“We’re just about to sit down to dinner now big guy.” I told him.

“Can I just have a bite then?” He said.

“Go on then, just a bit.” I said.

“Mmmmm,.” He said closing his eyes. “That is lovely.”

I froze the rest of the buns, even the half eaten one. 😉

About whatdidyouhavefordinnerlastnight

I started this blog to record the meals I make for my son. One of the many great memories I have of my childhood is the food I ate. The smell of boiling cauliflower on a Sunday morning that steamed up the windows, Lamb sandwiches for tea in front of the tele, cubes of raw jelly at nan’s house and of course mum’s homemade pizza (made with a short crust base) I hope my food creates good memories for my son but if nothing else this blog might jog his memory when he’s older! Enjoy.

    Did you take a bite of one of them? Many of the commenters on the recipe’s website said they were pretty miserable…I’m curious to know your POV.

    My mom also picked up Family Circle & Woman’s Weekly from the grocery store on a regular basis. Funny.
