Got the baking bug in your bubble?

The Team from Auckland Museum

We think you’ll love this New Zealand Hot Cross and Cold Cross Bun recipe from Aunt Daisy's Cookery Book of Approved Recipes, from our collection.

Maud Ruby Basham (30 August 1879 – 14 July 1963), professionally known as Aunt Daisy, was a well-loved New Zealand radio broadcaster. Her 30-minute daily morning show ran from 1933 to 1963. Her role was primarily to promote household products and to boost morale during World War II. Try out this recipe and it might just boost your morale! Best served hot with lashings of butter…

Aunt Daisy’s full recipe and other activities for the Easter Weekend are over at our Auckland Museum at Home Hub!

Astringent persimmons

Helen from Red Beach

Keen to get hold of some of the old fashioned persimmons, my sister and I love them, and they’re not readily available.
Thought it was worth a try, posting on here.
Happy to buy them!
