Easter is a time to get the family together for feasting and companionship. Welcome everyone back for an Easter themed morning meal, with Kitchen Warehouse to help you with all the little touches to make this Easter your best ever.
We always follow the Good Friday tradition of eating hot cross buns to represent Jesus on the Cross. My father began bread making bread in his 30s and proudly produced a batch of Hot Cross Buns every Good Friday after that, a tradition I followed with my own family. Homemade Hot Cross Buns are delicious fresh out of the oven, full of fruit and spices, and best spread with melted butter.
Easter is coming up real soon, and we all know that food is a big part of the festivities. Nobody can say no to a sweet treat or a fluffy cake on the table. All over the world, there are different dishes that are enjoyed as the lenten season concludes itself. Here in Australia, hot cross buns have become a big must-have in every home during Easter. Other countries also have their own Easter staples. Today, we’ll be talking about – and sharing recipes on – three famous Easter bread recipes all over the world.
Having an Easter meal with relatives is an essential tradition, and here we’ve got just the perfect side dish for the event – creamy, cheesy, delicately flavoured potato bake!
Whatever seasoned meat you’ll have as a main dish, this potato bake is a perfect accompaniment. It looks fancy but is actually easy to make, not to mention a nice change from the usual mashed potatoes.
Hot cross buns coming your way!
With a rich history as a food offering to the Saxon goddess and a symbol for crucifixion, hot cross buns are a favourite food for the Easter Holidays. Such is their popularity that, this year, supermarket chains have been selling them as early as January.
These spiced, fruited buns are traditionally eaten on Good Friday, the day in which they wouldn’t go mouldy, according to superstitions. They’re also hung as good luck charms or, as some would have it, enjoyed served with lashings of butter and complimented with tea.
This recipe makes light and fluffy hot cross buns. They also freeze well, good for when you want to reserve them for later.
