A Good Friday tradition…

 Yes!  I’m still here!  According to my record of views of my last post, there must be some of you who are wondering if I am still around.

Following along with what has become a Good Friday tradition since the early eighties…

…it is time to bake Hot Cross Buns!  Here they are after they have refrigerated overnight, waiting to be baked.

Here is that tray, just out of the oven.  The Husband declared them “perfectly baked!”  He doesn’t like them baked too long.

Now they have been smeared with that delicious glaze!  How can anyone go wrong with powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla?  

I have at least a dozen or two pictures from the past couple of months, always intending to take the time to post some to the blog.  One of these days, I may just post a photo overload.  We haven’t been idle here, and there have been many occasions to observe since mid-February.

Special Easter blessings to each of you!


  1. Hi Nellie, it's good to see a post from you. I was wondering how you were. Like you, I haven't posted much lately either but I finally posted yesterday.

    Your hot-cross buns are blog worthy. I used to make them years ago but somehow haven't made any in a long time. I wish I could taste one.

    Have a Blessed Easter.
    Hugs, Julia

  2. Oh, Sister!! I'm drooling here, just imagining the taste of those wonderful buns! Tempted to show up at your doorstep, but I'll try to behave myself. Lots of love to you always!

  3. Those look delicious. I hope you have a wonderful, blessed Easter. xo Diana

  4. Oh, they look SO good ! My mom used to make them and we would sing "Hot Cross Buns, Hot Cross Buns, One a penny, two a penny, Hot Cross Buns" !

  5. Your hot cross buns look delectable, Nellie!
