Hot cross buns are a sweet, yeast-leavened, spiced bun made with currants or raisins, often with candied citrus fruits, marked with a cross on the top. In many countries, hot cross buns are traditionally eaten hot or toasted on Good Friday, with the cross representing the Crucifixion.
The cross can be made in a variety of ways including icing, pastry, rice paper, or two intersecting cuts. They are traditionally eaten on Good Friday but in the United Kingdom they are now sold all year round.
