Hot Cross Buns are fruit cakes that are decorated with a white frosting cross on top. They are typically served with a butter spread. This baked treat was sold in the streets of England to the cry of “Hot Cross Buns!”. The tradition dates back to the nineteenth century. Generally sold at Easter, these treats celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ following His crucifixion on the cross.

Hot cross buns! Hot cross buns!
One a penny two a penny – Hot cross buns!
If you have no daughters, give them to your sons.
One a penny two a penny – Hot cross buns!
