Good Friday and Easter Sunday are this weekend, and making dreamy desserts part of your holiday tradition is what drives us! Whether it’s Spiral Ham, Easter Egg Hunts, Lamb Chops with mint jelly, or Easter Brunch out with your family, you’ll need some Easter Sweets.
Our Brioche Hot Cross Buns are the star of the show! Traditionally eaten on Good Friday, Hot Cross Buns are a spiced little Easter bite with a long history. We make ours with a buttery, egg Brioche dough that sets them apart, and add cinnamon, nutmeg, dried fruits, candied peel, and raisins. Top it with a lemon curd cross and you have a wonderful treat to enjoy with a cup of coffee. Eat them as is, or toast it and slather it with butter…
We’ll be sampling Brioche Hot Cross Buns all week in our bakery. Come by and ask for a taste! And then take some home (they are available in boxes of 6 and for special orders). If you join us for Easter Brunch next weekend, you will get to enjoy one with your meal: they’ll be served on every plate!
