A hot cross bun is a bun marked with a cross and containing dried fruit, traditionally eaten on Good Friday. But the supermarkets always stock them so early, I swear I saw them the first week of the new year, which I feel takes away from the special treat they are for easter. But then again, I do admit to buying them then too, can’t help myself. However, easter eggs is another story, I definitely do not purchase them until Easter.
Have you ever made your own homemade hot cross buns? I haven’t but would love to if i can find the time this easter. So I have put together a list of great homemade hot cross bun recipes I would love to try, I hope you find something you like amongst them too!
Thank you to my dear friend Carissa for sharing her Home-made Hot Cross Bun recipe.
Carissa doesn’t add the cross on top, so she calls them not cross buns LOL. I have included Carissa’s recipe below (adapted from Thermomix’s EDC cookbook).
