An Easter staple, hot cross buns are a much-loved British treat, baked with raisins, currants, and best served with lashings of butter. Traditionally, hot cross buns are eaten in celebration of the end of Lent, but whether you've participated or not, this recipe is too good not to share.
We caught up with Hotel Café Royal’s Executive Pastry Chef, Sarah Barber, to get the secret to the perfect homemade hot cross bun.
Huge thanks to Hotel Café Royal for sharing its recipe - we hope you enjoy this delicious Easter treat.
