I making it my goal to make a hot cross bun recipe every year. This year I’m doing chocolate chip hot cross buns. I have no idea what I’ll come up with for next year. The good thing about these ones, is they also have a gluten free version.
Hot cross buns are so awesome. we try to either buy really good quality store bought ones or to make our own, there are two other flavours on the blog, normal hot cross buns and our favourite, apple cinnamon hot cross buns.
Growing up I only ever had the fruit ones, and I think I used to eat them filled with a microwave poached egg! When I think about that now…it kind of grosses me out.
I have to admit, I love it when hot cross bun season comes around! They are super tasty for breakfast, morning tea or afternoon tea. And these choc chip ones are no different! Packed with yum and a chocolate cross on top, they are sure to become a family favourite.
Of course they freeze well- just defrost overnight in the fridge or quickly zap in the microwave in the morning if you forget to defrost them.
Perfect with your morning “cuppa” when you get back from school dropoff! It would be wrong for the kids to get all the good stuff! Get them in the kitchen and making these with you, they will love watching the dough rise- my daughter thinks it is a science experiment!
How cool is that cooling rack in the photos? It was sent to me by bendo (it was gifted) and is so pretty! They have lots of other colours too!
