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!
Joy’s going to share her very own Hot Cross Buns recipe with zingy citrus powder and MACE soon. :O (And we can’t wait!)
But today we’re sharing the results of our latest baking experiment:

Easter may still a few weeks away, but you wouldn’t know it judging by the supermarket shelves. They’ve been packed with hot cross buns for weeks, so no wonder it feels like time flies by so quickly.
The busier we get, the faster time flies, which is why we think holidays like Easter are so important.
They’re a chance to slow down and relax. To spend time with those important people in our lives and eat some delicious food along the way! 😀

As I sit here and type, our home city of Adelaide is sweltering in a heatwave.
Today it reached 42˚ celsius / 107˚ fahrenheit. It doesn’t even matter which scale you use – that’s hot!
