The Market’s Hot Cross Buns – Tried & Tested!

Thursday 15th March 2018

The best Market hot cross buns

Hot cross buns have hit the Market shelves and we’ve done our research to see what’s on offer. From traditional fruit to chocolate orange – they’re ready and waiting to be lightly toasted and smeared with your favourite topping, whether it be lashings of butter, jam or curd, it’s your choice. Or, may we recommend a scoop of gelato if you are really treating yourself? Read on to find out where you can get your hot cross buns this Easter!

Ginger Beer Fruit & Chocolate Orange – Q Le Baker
Made in-house, Q Le Baker has put a spin on the traditional hot cross bun with their homemade ginger beer, soaked fruit buns. Delicious with some not-too-sweet curd. And everyone knows chocolate and orange is the perfect combination. They recommend topping these with cultured butter and a little salt.

Traditional –  Noisette Bakery
You can’t beat a traditional hot cross bun and Noisette Bakery know this better than anyone. Made with pre-fermented dough and a tasty selection of fruit, the bun is light and tasty. The best part is Noisette’s buns are available all year round – but only have the cross on them for Easter.

Woodfrog – Paddlewheel
At Paddlewheel, you’ll find Woodfrog’s hot cross buns. With a delicious citrus flavour, they have organic sultanas and currants that have been soaked in orange juice. With lots of zest and cinnamon, they really are a ‘must try’.

Rustica – Chaso’s Gourmet Deli
Fruit-filled buns are the order of the day at Caso’s Gourmet Deli. The dried sultanas and currants have been soaked in brown sugar syrup (which is also brushed on the top to give an irresistible sticky appearance). With no peel but orange zest in the dough, they are rich in flavour.

Baker D. Chirico – Ripe the Organic Grocer
The dense texture of Baker D. Chirico’s hot cross buns is what sets them apart from the rest. Richer in flavour and darker in colour than their counterparts, they’re packed full of fruit, peel and an interesting blend of spices. If you like your buns with a bit of spice, this is the bun for you.

Phillippa’s & Stoneground Productions – Pete n Rosie’s
Irresistible hot cross buns from Phillippa’s and Stoneground productions can be found at Pete n Rosie’s. Chad from Pete n Rosie’s advises slathering on butter but if you want to try something a little different then Goat’s curd is delicious.

Hot cross bun ice cream sandwich – Fritz Gelato
If you want to make a hot cross bun ice cream sandwich, head to Fritz Gelato to get your favourite scoop to put in your hot cross bun of choice!
