Hot Cross Buns

 Hot Cross Buns

The hot cross bun is made from rich yeast dough that is spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg or mace and contains raisins or currants. In Christian households, this bun, whose cross symbolizes the crucifixion, is typically eaten throughout the Lenten season.

There are some interesting superstitions about hot cross buns.

  • Supposedly, if you share a bun with another person, this will ensure friendship throughout the coming year.
  • If these buns are taken on a sea voyage, they will protect the boat from a shipwreck.
  • If a bun is hung in your kitchen, it will protect against fires and ensure that all baked bread will turn out perfectly.

A fond memory from my childhood is eating these delicious buns with our  “name” eggs for Easter Sunday breakfast.

The recipe for these hot cross buns, which received rave reviews, comes from Britain’s master baker Paul Hollywood.
