HOT CROSS BUNS

Hot Cross Buns are small, sweet yeast buns with raisins or candied fruit, marked on top with a cross of white confectioners' glaze, and traditionally served in England on Good Friday. 

The English tradition of serving small sweet cakes on Good Friday dates back to the 16th or 17th century, but the cross on top (originally just marked with a knife) dates to the early 18th century.
 

“Good Friday comes this month, the old woman runs,
with one or two a penny hot cross buns”

Poor Robin's Almanack (1733)
