Guess what? I have TWO giveaways for you today!
The Easter Bunny is coming this weekend and we’ll be waking up to these Homemade Hot Cross Buns, with Gay Lea butter of course, for breakfast. Most of my family are not fans of the dried fruit peel that’s normally in Hot Cross Buns so the good thing about making them yourself is that you can add whatever you like!
I’ve had a love-hate relationship with raisins all my life. I like them in trail mix, cinnamon-raisin toast and muffins. I don’t like them in chocolate (that’s the worst) or butter tarts. So when asked if I like raisins, I always have to answer yes and no.
What I do like for sure, though, is toasting my Homemade Hot Cross Buns in the toaster and smothering it in Gay Lea Spreadable Butter. It’s fresh, tasty butter that you can take right out of the fridge and spread it on whatever you like. No more taking the butter out ahead of time to come to room temperature and no more ripping your toast apart to get some on your bread. How good is that?
For these Homemade Hot Cross Buns the only fruit I added to the dough was raisins and cherries. I knew all of my kids would love the cherries but my one son, who doesn’t like raisins, will just have to pick them out. I can’t please everyone!
Not only does Gay Lea make this incredible spreadable butter in regular and light but you can also get it with Cinnamon & Brown Sugar. I think I might have to try some of that on my Homemade Hot Cross Buns. Oh, that would be so good!
