Good Friday and hot cross buns

To kick off Easter celebrations, I'm immersing myself in all things Hot Cross Bun. Diets are banned from the blog today!

I won't waste your time by asking you to read lots of things when there are treats to be had, so please sit back and relax, drool a little, and enjoy these great interpretations of this traditional indulgence. And then go eat them all.

Jason's Bakery is kicking butt and taking names in the hot cross bun department. The peeps over at have done the research, and they give them a big thumbs up.

*Clears throat*

To quote:

"Jason’s is doing two delicious hot cross bun breakfasts. Number one is the Hot Cross Bomb: A hot cross bun with Emmenthal, bacon, and a poached egg. Number two is hot cross bun French toast with apple compote and bacon. I have done the selfless deed of testing both of these and they get two thumbs up for sure.

For the ultimate hot cross buns:

Head to Frankie Fenner for some bacon hot cross buns baked by Jason himself. You can’t go wrong."
