Hot Cross Buns and a Pot of Tea

It just isn't Easter for us without Hot Cross Buns. They are quite difficult to find around these parts, but we lucked out today when we discovered a well-known, local German bakery that was selling them. As soon as we arrived home, the kettle was on and we enjoyed an impromptu tea with buns.

I never even saw a hot Cross bun while I lived in the US - but I knew how much they cost ;) After I moved to England I was pleased to find out they do, indeed, exist, and now you can't swing a marshmallow chickie without hitting one.

ha ha We loved the "cheep" ones from Tesco. The ones we bought yesterday were $6 for 8 quite large buns. Hot Cross Buns in America on Good Friday. Priceless. :-)

Denise, I just returned from Panera's for lunch and they had hot cross buns!

BTW, do you have a Marshall's? They have 80ct. boxes of The London Cuppa for $5.99. Fantastic price!

Oh, that looks wonderful. My Mom used to bake her own Hot Cross Buns every Easter. They were also available at all the bakeries in Canada. I haven't enjoyed one in years - I'll be on the lookout for them now.
