We baked you hot cross buns!

Hot cross buns are so popular around Easter time, they have developed a persona of their own. They're as synonymous with Easter as coloured eggs, but they tend to get recognition only once, maybe twice a year. But when they do get noticed, they go big! We searched the web for the best of the best hot cross bun stories and this is what we found.
