Why I love Easter, part 1...

Tonight I made hot cross buns and, quite frankly, they smell delicious. 

I started trying to bake them last night.  I melted the butter and infused the milk with cardamon and cloves, but that was as far as I got.  Due to an unlikely shortage of eggs I had to wait till this morning before I could really get cracking (hoho)

I always find it rather scary doing anything where there is yeast involved (I leave all that up to my breadmaker) but early reports suggest my first attempt at hot cross buns was a success.  They look pretty darn scrumptious, if a little homespun... 

The proof is in the tasting though,  so I'm off to eat one now!
