Here’s where you can get your Hot Cross Bun fix over the Easter Weekend

Universally loved for the warm fuzzies they bring at this time of the year, the fragrant aroma of spices, lashings of butter and just the right smattering of fruit, the Hot Cross Bun defines Easter in one pillowy mouthful. 

Promising to ensure we don’t miss out this Easter, three bakeries are delivering our much-loved buns, just when it counts the most. Get in quick, we’re sure they won’t last long. 

Olaf’s hot cross buns take on the textbook traditional form and flavour of the Easter treat. Slightly bready but not the slightest bit dry, with just enough glaze on top to deliver a shiny finish and the tiniest amount of sweetness. It’s the hot cross bun that brings nostalgia in spades and takes us back to the times before sourdough became mainstream and the rise of the brioche dough trend. This has a special place in all of our hearts.
Delivering throughout Easter weekend and will continue their hot cross buns after Easter

The classic six pack of soft tear-apart buns are lightly spiced and with a smattering of fruit. Perfect either fresh from the pack, or lightly toasted and served with butter.
Delivering Good Friday and Easter Monday

Daily Bread
Fluffy, spicy, fruity and uncomplicated — Daily Bread’s hot cross buns are light enough for a mid-morning treat. The coconut sugar syrup glaze lends a subtle sweetness and glossiness to the bun, without overpowering the rich aroma of spices while the sourdough rye base makes for a lighter texture. They taste equally good, toasted or fresh.
