Hot Cross Buns

Hot cross buns are treats that were sold in the streets of England from as far back as the 12th century. They are fruitcakes, decorated on the top with a big white cross. The buns were sold in the streets with the cry, ‘Hot Cross Buns!’ and were generally sold most during Easter. Hot Cross bun came into being, according to widespread tales, by an Anglican monk who baked the buns and marked them with a cross. He marked them in honor of Good Friday. Over time this bun is said to have gained popularity and slowly became a symbol of Easter holidays.

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
