The Easter holidays are here, and that means I can make an abundance of Hot Cross Buns. We love eating Hot Cross Buns in our house. My hubby and I love the traditional fruit ones. The kids love the choc chip variety. But whatever delicious bun it is, we love smothering them with a thick layer of butter.
If you don’t know what a Hot Cross Bun is, it is a spiced sweet bun made with sultanas or raisins and is marked with a cross on the top. Traditionally it is eaten on Good Friday but they do start to appear in stores as early as January. You can read more about the tradition of a Hot Cross Bun here. We do resist the temptation and don’t buy them until it is closer to Easter. It is hard, but they are worth the wait.
