Hot Cross Bun Season

Hot Cross Buns. I just read that they are to be eaten on Good Friday. Ooops!

Listed as Easy Hot Cross Buns – King Arthur Baking Company Recipe with dried fruit and currants. Do you like Hot Cross Buns?

And From All Nursery Rhymes

The song was first published in the “Christmas Box” London, 1798. However, the song appeared earlier as a street cry. The “Poor Robin’s Almanack for 1733” published the following lyrics:

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!

  1. I love Hot Cross buns. My grandmother made the best and every year around this time I think of her hot cross buns and begin a search for some that tasted like hers. In over 50 yrs I have yet to find any. Apparently no one pure the “love” into baking them like she did. .

    • You might have to try and bake them yourself cause then they’d have that special ingredient- love.

  2. I love hot cross buns and have already consumed a few. Maybe this year I’ll try making them from scratch.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
