Traditional spiced, sticky glazed fruit buns with pastry crosses. Typically served as a classic Easter treat, the buns can also be enjoyed at any time of year.
Hot Cross Buns are a seasonal yeast bread traditionally served on Good Friday. These sweet buns are nicely spiced with ground cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves, and are studded with currants. What makes them instantly recognizable is that the tops of the buns are marked with a 'cross' which symbolically represents the Cross of Christ and the Crucifixion.
