Most people assume hot cross buns came about as a tribute to Jesus, but others claim that the Saxons ate them in honour of the goddess Eostre and that the cross symbolises the four quarters of the moon. I don’t really care where they came from, to be honest about it, I’m just glad they’re still on the go.
Cold with a steaming mug of tea, or toasted under the grill and dripping with butter. Yum. Though I could’ve cried today when I got these home and realised the baker at the supermarket had FORGOTTEN TO PUT THE RAISINS IN!!! I miss my local bakery. :(
