I even managed to make a menu plan and I only made one emergency dash to the dairy (in which I bought the last bottle of cream in the eastern suburbs). I managed to use some of my recent cookbook acquisitions AND my fancy new cake tin. The cake I made in it was a disaster, but that's another story. My hot cross buns - Dan Lepard's spiced stout buns - turned out a little heavier than I expected too, but anecdotal evidence tells me that a lot of people struggled to make decent buns this year. Let's blame climate change, shall we?

They are seriously, seriously good. I took a basket of them to an annual Easter bun-fest/chocolate frenzy at a friend's place and while the kids ran amok hunting Easter eggs, the adults just ate doughnuts and reclined with beatific expressions. I can't wait to make them again. But perhaps I'll sign up for the Wellington half-marathon first...
What did you make this Easter? Have you made the L&F doughnuts before?
