These apple buns are such a treat and my family has requested them many times since I first tested the recipe a few weeks ago. I was so happy with the way they came out! The buns are soft and light, and if you love all things apple like us then you’ll also love the flavour.

Holiday pull-apart buns
It’s my last blog post for 2019, and I hope you’ll like this Christmas treat that I’ve put together.

Great for sharing at brunch or tea time!

Chocolate hot cross buns
There is a little back story to this recipe which was inspired by a good friend of mine. She recently left Australia where she has been living for the past few years, and where chocolate hot cross buns are readily available. During a recent chat a few hints were dropped about creating a similar recipe… I suspect that since she will be making her way to Cape Town in the next few weeks (and has confessed to being addicted to them) that she was actually being serious! Well of course I accepted the challenge and thought these would be a gorgeous treat to enjoy at Easter.
