6 Hip-Hoppin' Ways To Eat Hot Cross Buns

14 Apr 2017

It wouldn't be Easter without dessert. Here, 6 fabulously-delicious ways to eat hot cross buns.

1. HOT CROSS BAGELS.

Head over bagels? If you're not so keen on hot cross buns, but would much prefer a warm bagel - then this is the perfect choice for you. Simply add a sugar glaze in the shape of a cross; making sure all four lines are straight and equally placed, and you've just achieved one bagel-licious treat!

2. HOT CROSS MACARONS.

Decadent, delectable and oh, so delicious... these small pieces of heaven are bound to run out quickly! If you're planning on having a high tea this Easter, then these hot cross macarons are the quintessential addition.

3. HOT CROSS DONUTS.

You do-nut believe it?! Yes, these puffed-pillowy delights exist, and they could all be yours this Easter. Whether you purchase these or make them yourself, it's as easy as adding a sugar-glazed cross to a cinnamon donut, 6 and 12-packs available at Coles.

4. HOT CROSS SANDWICHES.

It's just like having your favourite sandwich, but now - inside a warm, delicious hot cross bun. Slice your hot cross bun open, and fill it with the ingredients you love to achieve a hoppin' mini-sandwich. You can also toast or grill your hot cross bun for a more gourmet dish.

5. HOT CROSS FRENCH TOAST FINGERS.

Hot cross buns meet french toast, and the result is absolute bliss. After all, it is Easter so don't be afraid to indulge. Perfect to eat for morning tea, before lunch or even as dessert after a lovely Easter dinner. See the recipe for Coles' 'French Toast Hot Cross Bun Fingers' here, and let the baking begin!

6. HOT CROSS TOASTIES.

For whichever combination you love most on your morning toast, place the same ingredients inside a hot cross bun. Popular examples include peanut butter and strawberry jam, Nutella and banana or raspberries and cream. Yum!
