Hot cross buns recipes

We love hot cross buns! Lightly spiced and deliciously sticky, they’re the perfect Easter treat.

Whether you stay true to the classic recipe or try something different, homemade hot cross buns are great fun to make and everyone can get stuck in. 

Why not try your buns toasted and served with cheese or turn them into a dessert with baked fruit, a dollop of mascarpone and a sprinkling of orange zest? Or give one of these tasty twists a go.

The hidden melting middle takes these hot cross buns to the next level. Serve warm from the oven – you will love them!
