It’s that time of year when the shops fill up with chocolate eggs and hot cross buns are the feature of weekend breakfast. Actually, it’s been that time of year since chocolate bunnies replaced Christmas decorations in early January. But only now, with Easter a few weeks away, it is appropriate to wake up to the smell of hot cross buns toasting in the oven.
I love waking up to a lightly toasted hot cross bun or two, straight from the oven and smothered in butter. These days you can get all sorts of different types – plain, choc chip, double choc, white chocolate with raspberries, apple cinnamon, spiced chai – you name it, they got it. My personal favourite however is the good old traditional fruit hot cross bun.
This week I’m looking for Canberra’s best hot cross buns. No matter what your favourite flavour is, I want to know, where do you get your hot cross buns from?
