    I had Hot Cross buns with honey the other day. We've always got loads for Easter and there's always some needing to be used up.

    Muller Crunch Corners are my weakness - the Banana with chocolate coated cornflakes is my fave.

    i LOVE snacking! if i was single i'd probably live off snacks of one sort or another. i'm not a massive fan of gigantic meals - i prefer to graze.

    You can make a LOVELY bread and butter pudding type thing with buttered hot cross buns and lots of single cream. YUM.

    My comfort food is probably SMASH though :D

    I just cut and butter 4 hot cross buns, and lay them buttered side up in a buttered tin. Then whisk two eggs with a small carton of single cream, and the same quantity of milk, and pour over the buns. Sprinkle on a bit of demerara and whack it in a medium oven for about 20-25 minutes.

    I add ground cloves, cinnamon and lemon zest because I love it, but with good hot cross buns you don't really need to.

    I have tried making it with just milk to save on the calories, but it isn't the same. And if you're having the buns and butter in any case, I think it's better to have it as a one off sin rather than compromise it.

    The new lemon and lime jaffa cakes are lovely. Not overly fussed with the blackcurrant ones.

    I love the big doughy pretzels that you buy at street stands in the US, but hardly ever see here.

    The small ones in packets are shit.
