Traditionally eaten on Good Friday and decorated with a cross to symbolize the Crucifixion, hot cross buns are made with sweet yeast dough and studded with dried fruit. We love to eat ours straight out of the oven, slathered with butter.

Hot cross buns are traditionally made in the upcoming weeks to Good Friday as part of the celebration for Easter and they seem to pop up at around the start of March in bakeries. They are aromatically spicy, full of delicious dried fruit and finished off with a cross and a sweet glaze. The buns are very easy to make and are simply beautiful eaten warm and slathered with lots of butter.
