If you were one those who turned to baking to get through lockdown - and even if you weren't! - thought I'd kick off by sharing the two most popular recipes on Stuff during those seven weeks: pull-apart hot cross bun bread, a recipe from Nicola Galloway, and cheese straws, a recipe from Sam Mannering. Let me know what you cooked in lockdown too.
