Hot Cross Buns

HE IS RISEN ! A blessed Easter Sunday to all my Christian Friends and loved ones ❤️
We only get to eat these delectable homemade Hot Cross Buns packed with raisins and spices this morning coz I could not make it in time for Good Friday 😅 Anyway , we still get to eat them this year. The Cross on the bun symbolises the cross He was crucified on  and the spices were used to embalmed his body after death. That's why Hot Cross Buns are made for Good Friday. Glad I made it last night 
traditional Hot Cross Buns

each bun is packed with raisins
and has spices like cinnamon powder and nutmeg powder
light and fluffy texture
one load of the recipe
