Yesterday I started off by making Nigella's Hot Cross Buns. The texture is actually more of a scone type bun than a shop bought one, but rather tasty and delicious when toasted.
After the buns were cooked I started on preparing a three course dinner as we had invited my parents around. Inspiration for the dinner came courtesy of Delicious Magazine.

Those sticking to Good Friday traditions didn't eat the pancetta & I substituted all chicken stocks for vegetable stock.
And we finished with Nigella's molten chocolate baby cakes:
