Hot Cross Buns: these spicy fruity buns have long been an Easter tradition in the UK.

Their history dates back to pre-medieval times and it is believed that the cross blesses the bun.


These Ivy Cottage buns are full of mixed fruit and spice and use an overnight prove to give a moist delicate crumb. The glaze is a sweet sticky treat and although it is said the cross and blessing would keep the dough from going stale, these however won’t last long enough to find out!
