Did you eat hot cross buns on Good Friday?
March 26, 2016 6:10am CST
I thought hot cross buns are Easter's food, and a friend just told me it's actually Good Friday's food. She made some hot cross buns and said they are really easy to make. When I looked at the ingredients, there is a long list. So I guess I'll just put this aside first. My son was asking me about Good Friday last night, and I didn't really know what others do on this day to remember Jesus's sacrifice. I just told him, people are baking or eating hot cross buns. Is it because of the cross? Did you bake or eat hot cross buns on Good Friday? What did you do on Good Friday? I wish I can make the hot cross buns perhaps some days later, or next year.

Hot cross buns are usually on sale for a few weeks in the bakeries and stores prior to Easter, so I poften end up buying several packs over the period. I have had quite a few over the past 10 days or so, but oddly never had any yesterday.

I like seeing your little Easter chicken running on the rolling egg. It's so cute! I have no idea if we have hot cross buns here, I'd really like to bake it myself as I don't think I have ever taste it before. Perhaps next year.

I actually had hot cross buns a week before Easter because it was on sale. LOL! I planned to buy another bag for Easter (got lazy to bake and I prefer scones over it anyway) but an Italian friend gifted us with a HUGE Pannettone di Pasqua that we ended up eating for a week.

Hi Cessy, it's nice to see you here! I hope I can find some hot cross buns here too, I haven't go and search for it. It's so nice that your friend gifted you the Pannettone. That looks delicious to me, I might not have tasted that too.

@cessy_08 I have really met any FCers here, I still haven't been exploring much here and there yet. Yes, I think sometimes it's good to relax here, though I usually ended up spending too much time here. I am really not good at cooking or baking, but I'd like to learn.

Firstly , is that the cross buns on the picture . Secondly , why was it named cross buns ? Does it have some cross designs? As for Good Friday , we just watched the procession of carriages with images of Christ and other scenes and saints during the passion of Christ

This is the only picture I found in pixabay, and it's said they are hot cross buns. I saw some pictures online, they look like these as well, but perhaps the cross might be more obvious. Ocean shared the wikipedia link, and I read that it's because of the cross and the spices inside signifying the spices used to embalm Jesus at his burial.

I did not have any but could eat many of them. They are my favorite. Here is a history of the bun and what it means.
