    My dear Foodies,
    It's getting to that wonderful time of year when trees blossom, lambs gambol in the fields...and hot cross buns go on sale.
    In fact, I'm eating some right now, toasted and generously slathered in butter.

    For me, it can only be salted butter on hot cross buns. Never unsalted, and never EVER that ghastly margarine.
    How about you? Do you not find that the light salty taste compliments the sweet tang of the dried fruit?

    Mmmmm... saying that, i've started making my own, becuase I'm finding shop bought ones are getting a funny taste. I'm actually pretty convinced that I can taste the preservative. But I agree on the butter!!!

    If I had any nutella at the moment, I would do. I ate the last of the jar in the cupboard yesterday with a spoon :sogood:

    When it gets to easter, me and my family stock up on proper hot cross buns from our local baker, and Sainsburys Taste The Difference chocolate hot cross buns, which are beyond amazing lightly toasted (That might just be me, I hate to see even slightly bit of black appear on my toast/HXBs) and covered in more butter than is probably sensible [=

    Yay for quoting Jabberwocky in your thread title.

    I agree, that is definitely the best way to eat hot cross buns, but where do we all think the best hot cross buns can be bought? M&S do tasty ones, as does a local bakery round my way.

    I really want a hot cross bun now...

    Sorry to disappoint!


    jellybeanjen, the ones I just had were from Waitrose, and they were lovely. The best though come from the Farmer's Market close to where I work on Saturdays. They're handmade by this lovely woman and MMMM, they're delicious.

    Take it as a compliment in that I assumed such a thread was totomino worthy!

    My dad's homemade ones are absolutely delicious. No shop-bought ones I've ever tried have come close.
