Hot cross buns are synonymous with the Easter weekend. The story goes that an Anglican monk from the 12th century whipped up some buns, branded them with a cross to observe Good Friday and a tasty tradition was thus born. In the old days, the buns were only ever eaten on Good Friday to mark the end of Lent (it’s got dairy in it, which was forbidden during the fasting & abstinence period).
