HOT CROSS BUN MAKING DEMONSTRATION

Loading map tiles. Please wait...

There are many interesting superstitions surrounding hot-crossed buns. One says that they will not spoil if baked or served on Good Friday while another claims that they can protect against shipwreck. A hot-crossed bun placed on the hearth is thought to protect from fire and also ensure that all your breads bake perfectly; kissing a hot-crossed bun before eating it is said to bring good luck. Our favourite superstition, however, is the one that says that sharing a hot-crossed bun with a friend will guarantee good friendship for the coming year.

 

We can't say whether or not these superstitions are true, but one thing we do know is that these traditional Scottish Easter treats are delicious – especially when they’re freshly baked!

 

Plan to stop by McDougall Cottage on Good Friday when we’ll be baking up some hot-crossed buns to share with friends, old and new. Nibble a sample with a hot cup of tea and don’t forget to take a free recipe home with you, so you can make some to share with all of your other friends.
