Enjoy these yummy homemade Hot Cross Buns With Icing. When you see this recipe, you may be inclined to start reciting the rhyme you have heard for "hot crossed buns" and wonder why they are called this. In the past, hot crossed buns were served on Good Friday and they are marked with the sign of the cross. This cross could have been cut into the dough before the buns were baked, or marked with icing like the ones from our Grandmother's classic recipe. The offering of food replaced the offering of blood to the gods that was a very uncivilized way to show respect, and food was a more civilized way in which people could celebrate and show honour. Baking homemade bread can be a labour of love, and with this recipe, you will be able to practice the art of bread making and have the pleasure or enjoying hot crossed buns straight from the oven.
