One A Penny...

Hot cross buns!
Hot cross buns!
One ha' penny, two ha' penny,
Hot cross buns!
If you have no daughters,
Give them to your sons
One ha' penny,
Two ha' penny,
Hot Cross Buns

(Traditional English Nursery Rhyme.
The earliest written record of it was published in London in 1798.)


My first attempt at making Hot Cross Buns - Good Friday 2011.

  1. They look brilliant - so much more appetising than shop-bought! x

  2. They look very good! What is the cross on the top made from? I've always wondered.

  3. Well done. I'm sure they tasted as delicious as they look. We're still eating ours!

  6. Yum! Clever thing, you. They look lovely, so soft and sticky!
    I didn't get around to the Hot Cross Buns this year, although the intention was there. We just had so many other lovely treats hanging around that I decided they would be surplas. Nothing wrong with an *un-crossed* bun though I suppose, for a post-Easter treat! Must dig out my Cornish Auntie's Yeast Bun recipe... :) xxx
