Hot Cross Buns – An English treat

You may have heard the nursery rhyme about hot cross buns but never knew what they were.  “Hot cross buns! Hot cross buns! One a penny, two a penny, hot cross buns!” This nursery rhyme comes from the call of bun vendors who would sell these traditional Easter treats for people to eat at the end of Lent.
Queen Elizabeth I thought they were somewhat decadent and ordered they could only be eaten during Easter and certain other special religious festivals. Nowadays they are popular throughout the year and sold at supermarkets. Queen Elizabeth I would not have approved.
A hot cross bun is sweet bun made with spices and raisins inside and marked with a cross on the outside. The religious symbolism of the cross is self-evident and the bun is supposed to represent Communion. In historic times, hot cross buns had a whole host of myths associated with them. For example, a hot cross bun baked on Good Friday could be used as medicine throughout the year.
If you would like to try your hand at baking a hot cross bun yourself, check out this recipe from BBC Good Food.

    What a great round-up overall. But I mean, really. There are only four words for this. Cadbury. Creme Eggs. Cupcakes. OMG. I have to make these! Thank you!

    Now I’m hungry! Thanks for the Easter goodies (I think my fave was the bread bunny!)

    We used to celebrate Easter in grand style when we were younger and had many of these on offer. My favourite to this day are the hot cross buns, I search them out wherever we are. Thanks for sharing and bringing back some good memories.

    Noel, what a superb list of Easter offerings. Timely for me,notorious, as I bought an Easter Paska bread today to get us in the spirit! Cheers!

    Having a sweet tooth, I loved all the different “Sweet” Easter treats. The Cadbury crème egg cupcakes were perhaps the most decadent for sure! Love learning new things too, although the ” hot cross bun baked on Good Friday could be used as medicine throughout the year” fact was a little odd but seeing that i like hot cross buns, I’ll believe it.

    Well, I’m hungry now! It was great to see this list of Easter foods and desserts.I found the Easter bunny bread particularly appealing – I’m wondering if I want to tackle that for Easter.

    Easter is such a fun food celebration. I’d have to add our Lamb Cake that we make every year. People always say what?!? It’s not made from lamb it’s actually just pound cake in a lamb mold. I’ve had it since we were kids. It’s always a big hit.

      Sure send me the recipe and I’ll include it into the post Sue!
