It is not much for me to say about hot cross buns other than they are awesomely delicious. Actually, to be quite honest with you, I did not have hot buns.
At least not that I know of before I came to the USA. In addition, I am raised with a different type of bread on Easter. Something like this one here.
I make these hot cross buns a few times a year because they are delicious and my kids like them, especially for breakfast, and they also make an amazing after-school snack.
On the other note, these are not traditionally made. Furthermore, if you follow my blog, you already know that I am not “traditional” person per se
Also, I like scoring a bread, by making a cross cut on top. Then, fill it with a thick sugary sweet paste.
An interesting article that I read a couple of hours ago that I have to share with you guys: “Good Friday Special: Hot Cross Buns – Myths, History, and Making“
