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!

Are you ready to ponder who should be Auckland's next mayor?

Todd Niall Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Kia ora Neighbours, Restaurateur Leo Molloy has given a clear sign of his mayoral campaign platform for the October 2022 vote. Less focus on climate change, more on private car use, and a downtown stadium. Does this sound like the right direction to you? Read the story below:

Sunil from Manurewa

Beware of a scammer operating on FB Marketplace. Name is J P Duncan (Jono). Modus operandi - Has been listing a car trailer for 1250 dollars stating it has a current registration & current wof. I visited his address in West Auckland & found the trailer didn't have a wof. The person said he would get the wof done within 3 days & he would hold the trailer if I gave him a deposit. So I gave him a deposit of $400 (bank transfer). Ever since then he has refused to get the wof done giving some excuse or another & has now stopped answering text messages & calls. Also, he has moved out of the property with no forwarding address. He called once & threatened me saying his old man is a gang member, he is a martial arts expert & has anger issues. Wanted my address to come & return my money. No sign now of the guy & the trailer. Can't tell how many others this guy has ripped off. The trailer number is - P676F. Have his phone number & bank account details. He said he did fencing & decking in West Auckland.
