Easter for me is about treats. Hot cross buns slathered with butter, cake and Easter eggs, and more chocolate than you can shake a stick at.
When I started thinking about what I wanted to make for my Easter treat this year, gluten-free hot cross buns were up there, but I really wanted to encompass everything I love about Easter into one delicious treat, which is where this recipe came from.
These cupcakes are beautifully chocolatey with a gorgeous hit of hot cross bun spice. Topped with vanilla buttercream and some candied peel they really do scream Easter.
