Hot Cross Buns: A Family Tradition

Hot Cross Buns: A Family Tradition

Today is Good Friday, and as a kid growing up we always had home-made hot cross buns, fresh out of the oven on Good Friday. Even as an adult, when I lived near my parents Mom would bring down a batch for our household to enjoy, which meant I never really had to learn how to make them myself.

So in trying to keep up with the tradition for my own family, here is what I am doing this morning. I made hot cross buns last year, but they weren’t ready until mid-afternoon. I’m trying to change that this year, so my family can experience them hot out of the oven this morning!

My handwritten notes are the best I could do to try and recreate what my Mom was so famous for: her hot cross buns. Mom was also very well known for her amazing cinnamon buns too… Just ask any one who knew her!

Here is a pan from my batch last year…


Do you make hot cross buns? What traditions will you be celebrating this Easter?
