Feeding the troops for Easter

Yesterday I decided to clean out my bag (well a semi clean out) amongst the usual junk was a half eaten hot cross bun that Immy had placed there, because she wanted to be able to eat it later on. Great, don't you just love that she isn't wasteful?

Then Bakers Delight asked me to try some hot cross buns, a few styles, but as you know, the Gym and I are fast becoming BFF's and I am trying not to resemble The Bunny come Easter morning. So it was decided to leave the taste testing to the troops at my office and on Friday the buns were to be delivered for some serious testing by the professional suit wearing types.

When the buns arrived, I was in a meeting, cos I am important like that (not), from there we headed to have a mini afternoon tea on the free bun stash.

It was gone! Clearly those buns were not too shabby and  got devoured quickly.

Thankfully one lovely lassie bagged up a few for me and I shoved those in my handbag - just like Immy had the day before. I may have eaten one or two on my way home from work.

So, whether you like to jump on the HXB band wagon before Easter or not, these ones are yummo.

If you don't believe me, then give them a try...leave me a comment and five of you will be sent a voucher to grab some for free.

  1. Oooh, I am a hot cross buns lover from way back. I've been known to stockpile them in my freezer for the not-Easter months!

    And I hear that the Baker's Delight ones are extra yummy!

  2. Re the photo: I wish I looked like that on Easter Sunday morning and not in daggy pjys with bags under my eyes the size of a giant chocolate rabbit!

  3. I love that photo! I love hot x buns. But like you am trying not to look like I have them strapped to my arse!

  4. Oooh I love a good hot cross bun, I love to make them, but so far this year I haven't got around to it. Thanks for the chance to win some Clairey!

  5. I love Hot Cross Buns. Nom nom nom. I've never tried them from Bakers Delight, though... My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

  6. I just found your blog via some crazy trail of hot cross bun crumbs...

    I'm now a follower and I'm shamelessly commenting for a chance to win hot x buns. I love them!

  7. MMM do someone mention Hot cross buns ...
    I'd be skipping too if I had some buns in my basket.

    I definitely think the bunny is cuter though ...
