Hot Cross Buns on Good Friday with Salada tea and someone you love
Today is Maundy Thursday the saddest day of the year for Christians who worship.
Tomorrow is Good friday. Good Fridy is a lovely memory day for me as my Canadian Grandma who was wonderful would always make hot cross buns to serve with sharp cheddar cheese and tea. She was always very careful to make the cross and not an X. Everytime I see a hot cross bun, I think of her. I only like them when they have currants and candied fruit in them. Then they remind me of her.
I have her recipe but it is so abbrevaiated, I don't think I would do it justice here so instead I found a recipe that is similar and looks the same. I am going to visit my 85 year old Aunt tomorrow who is having troubles to take her some hot cross buns (Grandma was her sister in law) and some chocolate biscotti. A little sugar and a memory of Grandma on Good Friday is sure to make her smile.
