Hot Cross Buns

For those who were unsure about
our "Hot Cross Buns"
also known as "Easter Buns"
That's what they look like, they
smell and taste delicious.
But why oh why are they in our
supermarkets from Dec. 28th
until Easter which is in mid April.

I suppose you didn't really want to buy these. But in the interest of good blogging,,,you had to buy them to get this picture.
Thanks for the sacrifice Peter. They do look good.

Better in the supermarket than on your plate. Ummmm, unless that's your plate.

Thanks for that picture. I was wondering what "hot cross buns" looked like. Seems like I recall that phrase from a childhood game we used to play.

What amazes me is that they will stay hot for 3 1/2 months.

Could the answer be just for the purpose of temptation? You are making me hungry. ec

Are you complaining, Peter?

FTS said...

Um... how do they taste?

Merle said...

Hi Peter ~~ Well done with the
picture. And then of course you had yo eat them!!!
They are meant to be heated hence
the HOT. They taste like most fruit or raisin breads, but have
a nice glaze on them that's yummy

I've never seen one, but now I have, thanks! :-) They do look yummy.

I hope you had a great weekend!

I think they are around long enough for kids to memorize the nursery rhyme.
...But they are delicious.

Looks yummy. Thank you for showing that..I'd always heard about them and never seen one.

G'day Peter! - We never saw these while we were downunder. (maybe they weren't around in June? But we did have a lot of English Teas with Scones. Thanks for letting me know there was something we missed while there. ~ jb///

Wow, I've heard of hot cross buns before, but I always just thought that they were angry rolls. ;)
