Your menu sounds lovely Marina. I love the Hot Cross Buns Chookie but I really like the picture of Ral and GD.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Chookie thatís the best Happy Easter photo , so Happy Easter to Ral and you .
Our DD made two chocolate cakes the first burnt the seconded was cooked with the roast dinner . Cake for our towns fish and chip lunch for royal childrenís hospital. They make about 350 lunches ! Everyone brings a salad and or dessert . We are doing a quick bite of lunch then to DM at the beach for Easter . Hard as DH has to stay to feed sheep ( he may need so quiet time out I would say too ) .

Thanks everyone.  Ral and GD are very naughty when they get together. 
Made a white loaf into cold oven today.

A nice loaf Chookie.

I totally agree, the bread looks delicious.
I made some more Hot Cross Buns this morning. I decided to replace some of the fruit with apple. I bl;itzed up a couple of apples and added it with the sultanas. It made the dough very soft but it was ok to work with. I have snuck one already and I'm not that impressed. Maybe I chopped the apple too much, but I prefer the taste of the fruit. I also put them in a 23cm square tin instead of a lamington tray. They are very high.
For the next batch I will go back to Chookie's original recipe. They will be plain fruit buns then.

Must be the day for hot cross buns.  Just out of the oven.  Hot cross buns without the crosses ;D,  Yours look nice Cookie.

Love the look of the buns, Cookie and Mab.  I think I over spiced one lot. 
Will cook the Trout that GD caught.

I asked in another post if you cooked the trout Chookie. I see you did. I'm sure it was delicious.
I realised at lunch time that we only had two slices of bread left, one Classic and one SD. I have made Chookie's No Fuss into a loaf of bread and that will do until I make some more. It makes a lovely loaf and is so quick.

Perfect Hot X Buns Margaret and Cookie. 😋

Gosh we forget all the great recipes in our books or on this forum donít we?  I found Iíd made this recipe once, Iíll need to do it again after reading all the positive reviews as I canít remember doing the recipe.  Thanks for bumping it Denise.
