I love this time of year. Winter is finally gone and Spring has sprung. The perfect time for a bit of baking. Hot Cross Buns are one of my absolute favourite things to bake (and eat!), perfect for breakfast, afternoon tea, late night snack . . . ! My recipe is really easy and although it does take some time, I guarantee the results are worth the wait. Check out my Ask Paul page for ways on how to make the process easy by breaking the prep up overnight and my top tips on getting the crosses perfect. In my recipe section you can also find my Simnel Cake recipe and a fab recipe for Raised Pork and Egg pie, which is ideal for feeding the masses this Easter weekend. Especially great on a picnic if the weather holds out this weekend.
So the wait is nearly over and my tour starts in just under two weeks. It all kicks off in Newcastle and I can’t wait to see all you lovely people. If you haven’t got tickets yet then check out the tour page to find out where tickets are available near you and also to be in with a chance to win a ‘meet & greet’ with me!
In preparation for the tour I have been doing some press and TV. Last night I was on Alan Carr’s Chatty Man. Check out the show tomorrow night (Friday 18th April) to see what we chatted about. AND guess who was on the show with me . . . Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann , Kate Upton, Katy B & Paddy McGuinness, what a line up!
Have a fab weekend and don’t forget to eat lots of hot cross buns!
