Hot Cross Buns!

These spiced, sweet buns are baked leading up to Easter Sunday, April 21st. Trays of the traditional fruit-laden buns are being pulled from our ovens in Wolseley and at The Forks every day.

Hot cross buns have a long history in our society. Originally part of the vernal, or spring, equinox, they were later absorbed into the Christian faith, with the addition of the cross symbol. It was thought that these buns, in conjunction with a prayer, would protect the family from fire, vermin, accidents, and shipwreck. Insurance that tastes good.

Watch this spot as we get closer to Easter, for more baking specials!
