Easter Hot Cross Buns...

Hot cross buns!
Hot cross buns!
One ha' penny,
two ha' penny,
Hot cross buns!
If you have no daughters,
Give them to your sons.
One ha' penny,
Two ha' penny,
Hot Cross Buns!

Traditional Hot Cross Buns are baked on Good Friday, in preparation for Easter. Redolent with currants, golden raisins, and candied citrus, these spicy yeast-leavened rolls are finished with a piped icing cross. Dense and flavorful, these buns are the perfect way in which to recognize the solemnity of Easter!

Many beliefs surround Hot Cross Buns. Our favorite is: Sharing a hot cross bun with another is supposed to ensure friendship throughout the coming year, particularly if "Half for you and half for me, Between us two shall goodwill be" is said at the time.

We finished our Hot Cross Buns with candied violets, the beauty of the flower on the cross symbolic.
Thanks to all our friends and clients for sticking with us during this difficult economic times. We wish you all a happy spring, and look forward to collaborating with each of you during the coming months!
Half for you and half for me, Between us two shall goodwill be...
