One of yummy goodies in Easter’s holiday feast is hot cross bun, a spiced sweet bun made with bread flour, milk, butter and raisins marked with cross on the top. It is traditionally eaten on Good Friday, a Christian auspicious day commemorating the death of Jesus from the crucifixion. There are many stories surrounding how the soft and fluffy treat makes its way to an Easter meal. Some say its origin can be traced back to 12th Century in which an English monk baked the bun with a cross to honor the Good Friday, while some others believe that the bun marked with a cross offers protection from evil spirit.
