#12 Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Hot Cross Buns

IMG_2019

What better way to mark my return than with a review of my very first hot cross buns? And what better way to begin this journey than with  Britain’s best hot cross buns? I am neither Catholic nor English, which explains why I have yet to try this little delight in my twenty years on Earth.

Untoasted, they looked squished, plain and kind of cheap. Nevertheless, I did my research, and the most popular method of serving hot cross buns appeared to be slicing, toasting and buttering them.

Behold:

sliced, toasted and buttered.

Such beauty. The abundance of currants; the crackly, caramelised surfaces; the half-melted butter slowly oozing through fluffy crevices. This was a wonderful experience. Realistically, it’s like a richer, softer cinnamon raisin loaf, but I’m not complaining. At all.
