Hot Cross Buns

Hot Cross Buns

Light and fluffy Hot Cross Buns made from scratch. These beautiful Easter buns are made using instant dried yeast and are filled with juicy dried fruit, fresh orange zest and warm spices. 

It’s that time of year again when Hot Cross Buns grace our supermarket and bakery shelves. But nothing beats making these beautiful Easter buns from scratch.

While it may be a little more time-consuming than say a batch of Mini Egg Cookies, there is nothing more therapeutic than making bread from scratch.
Fresh out of the oven, these Hot Cross Buns are light and fluffy on the inside and shiny and golden on the outside.

Filled with plump, juicy fruit, fresh orange zest and a handful of spices, they’re a flavour-packed Easter treat.
