I shared an idea on Monday for using a Honey Bunny as the center of a vegetable tray this holiday. Chances are you will also find our delicious Hot Cross Buns in your local Great Harvest bakery around the Easter season. A hot cross bun is a sweet, spiced bun marked on top with a cross of frosting. Traditionally, the buns were eaten during Lent and on Good Friday. I love to heat these up in the oven and eat them for breakfast over Easter weekend. The Great Harvest Hot Cross Bun may vary a little from bakery to bakery, but essentially it is our flagship honey wheat dough loaded with dried cranberries and golden raisins. Some bakeries dip their buns in a decadent cinnamon glaze before icing them with a lemony butter frosting. Superstition says that sharing a bun with another person ensures friendship.
