Hot cross buns 

We all love hot cross buns at Easter, or any time of year! Who can resist these sweet yeasted rolls with sultanas and lemon zest? We spice up this seasonal speciality with our Apple Cinnamon Porridge Spice

By the way, you can easily make the Hot Cross Buns vegan by replacing the butter with margarine and the milk with a plant-based milk alternative.

 

Sweet Set 

If baking is one of your favourite hobbies, then our Sweet Set is a dream come true! Whether you’re making pumpkin pie, Japanese pancakes or banana bread, our sweet spice blends bring out the best in all kinds of sweet treats
