Recipes that have me drooling this week

In my travels around the blogosphere I've found some wonderful recipes to make this Easter long weekend.  I thought I'd share some of my favourites with you.

Cinnamon-Fig Jam by Eating Out Loud

The recipe and beautiful accompanying pictures are giving me tingles.  What an amazing use for figs!  If you're in Australia grab them quick before they go out of season and make this divine looking jam.  I'm sure this will be fabulous added to an autumn cheese platter.

It is no secret that I love the lightness and texture of yogurt cake and this one looks fabulous.  Moist, light and an amazing colour - what more could you want?  STOP PRESS: You could also want a great grapefruit version!

Especially for easter:

Iron Chef Shellie's Hot Cross Buns

A classic looking recipe, adapted from Donna Hay's but with extra fruit, just the way I like it.  Shellie's photography is always gorgeous and these buns look soft and glazed-shiny.

Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Hot Cross Buns by Not Quite Nigella

Oh oh .. cimmamon, chocolate and the soft butteriness of a hot cross bun? Diet? What diet? Not Quite Nigella's take on the standard looks fabulous and I can almost taste them already.
