April crashed into me like a small plane hits the side of a mountain and I can’t even believe it’s nearly Easter. It’s also nearly Winter so its time to bring on the comfort food, fireside moments and loads of red wine. I can’t wait. April is my favourite month of the year hands down, and I adore autumn colours and light. Here are a few of my favourite recipes for the Month of April if you live in the Southern hemisphere.
With Easter smack in the middle of the month, these are a few of my favourite Easter treats (starting with the sweet ones first of course):
Once you’ve made your own hot cross bun you will only be buying shop ones in an emergency. These are delicious.
This is where a hot cross bun and a cinnamon sticky bun have a baby. They are mind boggingly awesome. Just do it.
Here the hot cross bun gets baked into a silky custard spiked with orange flavours and melty chocolate pieces. It’s a no brainer.
The perfect Easter roast with a hit of spice from the Harissa. The lamb gets cooked slowly for 4 hours until it falls off the bone. Check out all the sides that go with it too.
If you would prefer to roast a bird this Easter instead of lamb – this is the go to.
Or this one which is more casual.
For your big Easter feast or any roast at any time – these are the best roast potatoes to go with that.
One of my all-time favourite savoury scone recipes and perfect to get your baking mojo on like I am right now. Great for the Easter holiday week end.
This is great for a hangover
A superb fancy breakfast if you need to impress.
