I drew in such a deep breath when I saw the first photo of your hot cross buns! They look fabulous!!

In Melbourne hot cross buns make their appearance in supermarkets not only around Easter but from the middle of January, I kid you not! At least it means more time to enjoy them!! Although the chocolate ones look and taste really fake, I must admit that I like to eat them just as much as the spicy ones! :)

Thanks :) It's the same in Perth too - the hot cross buns make their appearance soon after maybe Valentine's Day. (I think the shops plan all their gimmicks around the special occasions so that they're back-to-back to milk all the money they can from consumers!)

SUPERMARKET RIPPOFF.

I USED TO WORK IN BOTH SUPERMARKETS, COLES AND WOOLWORTHS, ( AT DIFFERENT TIMES ).. AS A PASTRYCOOK,, HERE IN PERTH AND THEY HAD US MAKING THEM FROM THE FIRST OF JANUARY EACH YEAR. ALSO HAD US MAKING THEM FOR MONTHS AFTER EASTER AS WELL. UNTILL THE CHURCH AND OTHERS COMPLAINED. NOW IT'S ONLY UNTILL EASTER .

BLACKJACK.

Re: SUPERMARKET RIPPOFF.

Interesting insight, Blackjack. I didn't know the supermarkets used to sell the buns after Easter too.

We are missing out on Hot Cross Buns this year

We feel your pain regarding no Hot Cross Buns. We are on an American Ship and the kitchen is claiming they don't know about Hot Cross Buns. We didn't get any for Good Friday and the rumour is we may not be receiving any at all this Easter. We hope the Easter Bunny comes tonight and makes us some Hot Cross Buns. For those that have Hot Cross Buns, enjoy one for us.

Re: We are missing out on Hot Cross Buns this year

Aw, I hope that you guys got your hot cross buns on the ship! If not, I guess making them will be the best thing you can do for your cravings anytime of the year! :)
