Hot Cross Buns

Via Rollberg News, I found this recipe for Hot Cross Buns. I wonder how it compares to Barb's Hot Cross Bun recipe?

Anyhow, an interesting fact that I learned from this Hot Cross Bun recipe is that Hot Cross buns date back to pre-Christian times and that the cross on the buns was a pagan symbol for the Sun wheel and the spring equinox..

Fast forward to the present where the cross is now the symbol of Christianity and Hot Cross Buns are a staple of many Christian homes on Good Friday. Just goes to show you that history is fascinating and change is a constant!

Here's a picture of Barb's 2002 Hot Cross Buns. Happy Easter!
