National Hot Cross Bun Day

A hot cross bun is a sweet, spiced bun made with currants or raisins and leavened with yeast. Just as the name says, these buns are marked with a cross on the top. These buns are traditionally eaten on Good Friday with the cross standing as a symbol of the crucifixion. 

So, why then, is National Host Cross Bun Day six months after Good Friday? We don't know! The origins of this day are unknown. We think it's so you'll have another chance during the year to enjoy these sweet hot cross buns! Enjoy!
