Sometimes the smallest things can set off a bout of homesickness. Thankfully though, sometimes the simplest things can cure it. These super easy Strawberry Muffins were our 30 minute cure during a rather strong bout of homesickness while we were overseas, so we thought we’d share their delicious goodness in case you need a sweet little pick-me-up too.

Wandering through the middle of South East Asia was a heck of an adventure.

We were so lucky to see, try and taste so many zany new foods, but the longer we travelled, the more we started to miss…

Familiar things…

Comforting things…

Flavours that reminded us of home when it all got a bit too hard.

We’re on a pre-Easter high after sending out last week’s Koulourakia recipe – seems like you guys really enjoyed the chance to get creative with your baking!

We were chatting to our friend Joy over at Homestead Lovers earlier this week and told her all about our little experiments with sumac spice, which we used for a little citrus burst in our Koulourakia.

Joy was telling us all about the dehydrated citrus powders she’s created, and it got us thinking about how we could each mix our favourite flavours through old-fashioned/traditional Easter recipes.

One thing let to another, and we decided to hold our own little pre- Easter Challenge!

Below we’re sharing the results of our latest baking experiment for this moreish little Matcha Hot Cross Buns recipe, but don’t forget to check out Joy’s recipe for Hot ‘Pleased’ Buns recipe, which features zingy citrus powder and MACE. ❤️
