What's Happening On Instagram?In life before lockdown I’d never contemplated making hot cross buns at home. I’d hunt them down at my favourite bakeries. The closest I came one Easter, on holiday at the coast away from home, were Hot Cross Muffins. No yeast required. I think by the time lockdown is over, l will have conquered my yeast phobia. I don’t quite know what I expected but these were glorious. Soft, fluffy and delicious 😋 Thanks to Maggie Beer for a fantastic recipe https://www.maggiebeer.com.au/recipes/hot-cross-buns. I will admit I did make a couple of pantry substitutions. I glazed my buns with orange marmalade, used #Gewurzhaus prepackaged hot cross bun spice mix, and not having quite enough currants added a little freshly diced apple to make up the difference. And before I forget I also added finely grated zest from an orange and a lemon to the mix. My hungry horde descended and devoured them straight out of the oven. The pressure is already on to bake another batch for Easter 🐣 #thepaddingtonfoodie #cookingthroughit #hotcrossbuns #makeittogether #stayhome #bakingfromscratch #eastervibes #lockdown2020Another day, another bake, with cardamom my new favourite spice. This time paired with brown butter pistachios in a sensational take on carrot cake. No cream cheese frosting here, it’s topped with a vibrant and gloriously sticky carrot glaze. Recipe courtesy of #bonappetit Yes it’s a little decadent but very delicious. Swipe for a slice. #thepaddingtonfoodie #carrotcake #basicallybaking #cardamom #pistachio #carrotglaze #timetobake #fromscratchOne of the upsides of staying home is rediscovering the joys of baking. My happy place. Visiting Copenhagen last year I fell in love with #kardemummabullar from #junothebakery and #hartbageri. Inspired by a recipe from #fabriquebakery here is my take. Happy Sunday morning everyone and keep safe. #thepaddingtonfoodie #cardamombuns #frommykitchen #sundaymorningvibes #timetobakeChilli, sesame and peanut crispy chicken 💕 #thepaddingtonfoodie #lazylunch #summerinsydneySydney always puts on a spectacular NYE fireworks display. We hope the light sprinkle of rain that fell at midnight is a good omen for our fire and drought ravaged communities. May we all keep safe, happy and well in 2020. #thepaddingtonfoodie #mckellpark #darlingpoint #sydnye #hello2020 #prayforrainRounding out 2019 with a few of my favourite things. #thepaddingtonfoodie #poachedeggs #gravlax #asparagus #icedlatte #fratelliparadiso #endof2019We’ve loved soaking up the festive spirit in this wonderful city. #thepaddingtonfoodie #julfest #copenhagenlife #denmark🇩🇰It seems like there’s a bakery or pastry shop on almost every corner.

So many cafes to explore on a rainy Copenhagen afternoon and we’re so glad we chose this one. #thepaddingtonfoodie #copenhagenlife #whattodoonarainyday #chickenandwaffles #trufflefries #watermelon #cafelife #copenhagenfoodDanish breakfast.

Discovering and loving these traditional Danish open faced sandwiches. Originally known as smør og brød which loosely translates as butter on bread, each of these decidedly fancy toppings sit on top of a thin slice of buttered rugbrød, a delicious dense yet fluffy rye bread filled with seeds. There’s chicken salad with apple, mushroom, crispy bacon and gem lettuce, pumpkin with kale and almonds, and crumbed plaice with prawn, lemon, picked tomatoes and micro greens. All washed down with a glass (or two) of akvavit. Can’t wait to recreate these when I get home. #thepaddingtonfoodie #copenhagenfood #smørrebrød #danishfood #rugbrød #sandwichlove #opensandwichOn the hunt for cinnamon scrolls. We didn’t have to search too hard or too long to find this delicious little bakery in Jægersborggade already decked out for Christmas. Adore the "kanelsnurrer" made with Valrhona chocolate. #thepaddingtonfoodie #copenhagenfood #cinammonbuns #jægersborggade #danishpastry #denmarklifeOne of the joys of travel is discovering new and different food combinations. Some are quirky like the chocolate coated potato crisps in Hokkaido, Japan and now this...a deep fried chicken wing and donut replete with sunglasses 😎 at the Texas State Fair.
