Eggstraordinarily easy recipes for Easter treats



Okay, so we might be hopping into a second Easter spent in lockdown instead of enjoying fish and chips at the beach as planned, but that doesn't mean we're going without Easter treats this year. We've found Easter basket loads of easy recipes to keep you and your little chicks busy (and full up!) from Good Friday through to Easter Monday.

Hot Cross Buns



You definitely won't be cross when it comes to whipping these delicious buns of delight up (unless you can't get hold of eggs and flour right now, that is!). We'll be honest, we like to think of ourselves as Hot Cross Bun connoisseurs, and we love, love, love these ones by Mary Berry via BBC Food. All the mmmmm's.
