Giapo’s ‘Hot Cross Bun Cone’ Is the Dreamiest Easter Sweet Treat

  Giapo’s ‘Hot Cross Bun Cone’ Is the Dreamiest Easter Sweet Treat Hot cross buns are popular in historically Christian countries and eaten on Good Friday to mark the end of Lent (but many eat them through the Easter season). Giapo’s R&D Kitchen in Auckland has created a “Hot Cross Bun Cone,” built with part cone and part bun. The bun, which is served warm, is baked with orange juice-soaked raisins and a blend of cinnamon, clove, and candied orange peel.

Hot Cross Buns were originally a Saxon tradition which became an Easter tradition to celebrate Good Friday. Never Go "Hangry" Again! Get weekly updates on new recipes , exclusive giveaways plus behind the scenes photos.
