Since the kids left home and there is only Tom and myself to cook for I have tended to not make so many cakes.
Making a batch of cakes is so tempting and more than one is comsumed, I know....I could freeze them but we are both weak willed when confronted with a wire cooling rack containing say 12 chelsea buns.
Every Easter when we were a family I always made lots of hot cross buns and an Easter cake but haven't made one for years, anyway, just fancied making one again this year.
So out came my old recipe book from the dark ages and I dragged out the recipe for the Easter cake.
How old is this booklet? I don't know, it must be from the 70's and as you can see is literally falling to pieces. It came free with a magazine.
Anyway, I made it and it didn't turn out too bad. The proof will be in the eating but usually this cake eats really well.
Below is the book full of disintegrating recipes. lol
Now, the question is can I have the same success with hot cross buns ?
