With Easter approaching, that means hot cross buns are everywhere. Our big supermarkets came under fire from church organisations for stocking hot cross buns right after Christmas. I must confess I’m not really a hot cross bun fan. I mean, they’re okay but I just get over them really quickly. Every year I say I’ll bake my own and I might still do that for the Orthodox Easter which is still weeks away.
Mister Nice Guy’s Bake Shop have hot cross buns this week. So you know where we headed off to, right?
These hot cross buns are more along the line of what I prefer in a HCB. A sticky glaze (apricot jam) and not just a boring eggy/milky wash. Light and fluffy and no overdone fruit inside. Big too 🙂
Mister Nice Guy’s Bake Shop is located at 151 Union Road, Ascot Vale and very close to public transport. Here is their stockists web page:
