hotcrossbuns

In Belize, we grew up eating Hot Cross Buns over the Easter weekend, my mom would bake hot cross buns on Holy Thursday evening, we would enjoy with cheese and a cup of tea. On Good Friday, we would have hot cross buns with fried fish.  One of our Belizean traditions we continue to this day.

A hot cross bun is a spiced sweet bun made with currants or raisins, marked with a cross on the top, and traditionally eaten on Good Friday in the British Isles, Australia, Canada, India, Ireland, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa and some parts of America. The buns mark the end of Lent and different parts of the hot cross bun have a certain meaning, including the cross representing the crucifixion of Jesus, and the spices inside signifying the spices used to embalm him at his burial.[1][2] They are now available all year round in some places.[3] Hot cross buns may go on sale in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand as early as New Year’s Day[4] or after Christmas.
