If you’re not away from home or busy with family this weekend, why not indulge in a little Easter baking and whip up some sweet treats!?
Traditionally eaten on Good Friday, it is said that hot cross buns were first made by a monk in St Albans Abbey in the 14th century, to distribute to the poor. The Royal Pastry Chefs have shared their recipe and method to make these delicious Easter buns.
