Tofu Tuesday: Hot Cross Bunny

From the archives: Like most bunnies, Tofu has a sweet tooth and adores raisins and bread. Neither are good for rabbits but can be viewed as occasional treats. Tofu goes crazy for hot cross buns and a single bun can transform this usually mild-mannered lagomorph into a common thief.

One Easter, I left a plastic-wrapped hot cross bun in my handbag which was on a chair near our front door. The next morning, half the bun was found under our bed in our bedroom. Tofu had sniffed out the bun, foraged for it in my bag and carried his trophy to the bedroom to enjoy.

Over the weekend, I visited Parnell Farmers Market and purchased a couple of these giant hot cross buns from Pukeko Bakery. They were delicious!

These buns were much better than the buns we bought from a local cafe/bakery after reading a glowing review by a popular website. We paid $16 on 6 cafe buns! I guess everyone has different ideas on what constitutes as a good bun but the cafe buns were mushy, small and we decided were “very similar to supermarket buns”. Not what you’re looking for when you’re paying 4-5 times the price of supermarket buns!

I now have trust issues.

    I’m laughing about Tofu and the Hot Cross Bums! Who knew rani its liked them? This is a great feel good story and has started my Tuesday with a smile

  2. My bunny used to go crazy when I dared to have any tea or chocolate in my room, or even worse- both at the same time. I never gave her any, because it would have been bad for a bunny, but she sometimes managed to steal some :/
