Nothing says Easter like a delicious hot cross bun!
The tantalising combination of succulent fruit and spices like nutmeg and cinnamon make hot cross buns a tradition to look forward to every year. The delicious aroma of hot cross buns emerging from the oven and being slathered with butter is a time that many people savour and share with their friends and family.
This year, the classic hot cross bun has been given a fun twist on the traditional flavour, with many of our retailers offering hot cross buns in a range of innovative and delicious flavours. We’re seeing a huge range of interesting flavours that are sure to please every palate.
Easter in 2018 really is full of decadent delights, and we’re pleased to showcase some of our favourite new hot cross bun flavours below!

It’s so hard to walk past Baker’s Delight without being tempted by the delicious aromas of their famous hot cross buns! Baker’s Delight hot cross buns are baked fresh every day, and their dried fruit is soaked overnight to make it super juicy.
Baker’s Delight have incorporated real pink lady apples into their tasty Apple & Cinnamon Hot Cross Buns for an amazing flavour, and their Choc Chip Hot Cross Bun is a decadent twist, with over 100 choc chips in every single bun!
The Mocha Hot Cross Bun is a bold iteration on the classic, with a rich coffee/chocolate flavour imbued throughout the bun. And for those who don’t like dried fruit, the Fruitless Hot Cross Buns are full of spice and warm flavours.
There really is a hot cross bun for everyone at Bakers Delight!

The bakers at Ferguson Plarre have turned out a scrumptious range of hot cross buns for Easter this year. Their handcrafted buns are baked fresh every day and are tended to with TLC.
With an absolutely sensational range of flavours, the only question will be, ‘Which one will I try first?’
Their Raspberry and White Chocolate Hot Cross Buns are an innovative twist on the traditional bun, packed with white chocolate and tangy raspberry pieces, while the Plarre Choc Chip Hot Cross Buns are made with pure butter, premium milk chocolate, and are a tasty treat for anyone with a sweet tooth! Other delicious flavours include Mocha, Apple & Cinnamon and Traditional.
Plarre’s Traditional Hot Cross Buns are denser than many other buns, as they use Otto Plarre’s original German Hot Cross Bun recipe which calls for more fruit than flour, giving it extra flavour.
