Traditional Fruit Hot Cross Bun

After a sing-along of the traditional nursery rhyme, Hot Cross Buns, broke out in a COBS Bread bakery, the team had to share the tradition of hot cross buns with the world. Filled with raisins, currants and mixed spices, you’ll feel the magic in every bite. Some even say you can still hear the bakers singing…

Apple Cinnamon Hot Cross Bun

Made delicious by COBS Bread circa 2017, this un-traditional hot cross bun is the modern flavour on the block all the kids are talking about. This bun bursting with juicy red apples, and good ol’ cinnamon is just what the millennial ordered! A flavour that’s giving its traditional competition a run for its money, raisins, and currants.

Chocolate Chip Hot Cross Bun

Way, way, way back in the early 2000’s, a chocolate lover insisted on subbing out the raisins and currants of a Traditional Hot Cross Bun for 100 decadent dark chocolate chips. Chocoholics rejoiced and celebrated in dance to the likes of Queen Bey.

Cranberry orange Hot Cross Bun

In 2014, a friendly COBS Bread Baker in love with the flavour pairing of oranges and cranberries, snuck some in to our hot cross bun dough to see what would happen. Little did they know that this twist would become a family fave 7 years on! We thank that baker every year they grace our tables!
