Hot Cross Buns (made easy!)

Ingredients 500g pack white bread mix 50g chopped butter 50g golden caster sugar 100ml milk 1 large egg 85g currant (optional) 2 heaped tsp mixed spice (optional)
1. Add the sugar and bread mix together, rub in butter with your fingertip[s (kids love doing this!) Add the currants if your kids are keen on them. 2. Pour 100ml water onto the milk, beat in the egg, and pour into the dried ingredients. Mix to a moist dough, and leave for 5 mins. 3. Cut into 10 equal-ish pieces and have fun shaping them into buns with oiled hands. 4. Space the buns apart on 2 greased baking sheets and cover with a damp cloth, and leave for 30mins. Watch your kid’s amazement when you return to the grown buns! Use a knife to make the crosses, and bake at 220C/fan 200C/gas 7 for 12-15mins. Brush with golden syrup for a gorgeous glaze, and eat away!  

Easter egg nests

Ingredients You will need
100g Milk Chocolate Zip lock bag 2 shredded wheats Cup cake cases Small chocolate eggs
1. Place the shredded wheat into a ziplock bag and crush it using the back of a wooden spoon. My kids love to do this (as do I!) Less mess, and more fun. 2. Place the broken chocolate into a bowl and microwave for 30secs, stir and repeat until your chocolate has melted. Take care not to burn! 3. Pour the crushed up shredded wheat into the melted chocolate and mix together. 4. Put a small nest of the chocolate shredded wheat mix into the cupcake 5. case and add a few chocolate eggs on top and allow to cool.
