Seventy Eight - Easter Baking

I love to bake. Its kind of a problem when I'm trying to be healthy so I try to limit the amount of baked goods I produce unless I have a specific event or something to take them to. That is with the exception of the Christmas season and the Easter season when it's totally valid to go a bit baking mad. This year I decided to try my hand at hot cross buns for the first time... but of course they had to be chocolate ones!

  1. I love to bake too but, I haven't attempted hot cross buns. These look delicious. I end up taking a lot of baked goods to work where they disappear in no time.

  2. Your hot cross buns look delicious. Too bad you are so far away, but if the wind is just right think I can smell them. Yum! Tanks for the calorie free delight.
