Oh Yum. Hot Cross Bun Review.

bakers delight

Far out I love Bakers Delight.

First for sending me some hot cross buns to review this week (plus vouchers to give away!).

Second for making them in fruit, mocha and chocolate. Mmmm. Breakfast, Morning Tea, Dessert, they work anytime. Bring on Easter :)

Here's what I liked most about them.

  • Fruit: these are soft and doughy and full of sultanas, but no orange peel - good for me, I hate orange peel in fruit buns, it's all you taste. So nice, I'll eat this for breakfast any day.

  • Chocolate: these are dark, sticky, and oh so chocolaty. Yum. Great for dessert.

  • Mocha: Nice to have a flavour that is light and doesn't overpower my cup of coffee. My favourite for Morning Tea. These were all a hit with everyone last night when we shared them with Sophie's Nan and Pop. And the pic above is what Ben and I had for breakfast this morning.

Jealous? Then go buy some now, you don't have to wait for Easter.

** I received complimentary Hot Cross Buns from Bakers Delight for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed are purely my own.


  1. Well, I would have to get some chocolate buns (naturally because they are chocolate!!!), but might try some fruit ones too. Never keen on them for the same reason as you Marissa (the orange peel), so might be nice for something different.

    ps - have liked the bakers delight and your page on facebook!!

  2. Well, I confess I would be overdosing on the chocolate hot cross buns. They're my ultimate favourite! xx

  3. I'd buy the low GI bread! I have emailed you my contact info

  4. Yummo...i'd spend the money on the traditional fruit ones...can't go past them :) Although wouldn't mind trying the Mocha and Chocolate as well so i'd probably end up with a pack of each. You can never have too many hot cross buns over Easter :)

  5. I would go for the chocolate! I've emailed you my contact details too

  6. I'd get some multi-grain bread... always running out of bread around here.

  7. Congratulations to Rochelle, Lisa, muminsearch, Ange and Fiona!

    You are all winners of a $5 Bakers Delight voucher! I'll be in touch this week for your postage details :)
