Let’s make this the most delicious Easter ever!

Learn to how to hand make the ultimate batch of 12 Easter hot cross buns. Discover the secrets of creating soft and fluffy enriched dough that forms the foundation of these. We’ll bake – then celebrate!



You’re the boss of the buns! So many tips and tricks:

  • Mastering yeasted dough: learn how to knead, prove, check and handle your dough for great results each time
  • Perfecting the flavour blend: the right combination of spices, fruits and other goodies will give your buns that irresistible flavour – and to your own taste (LOL without peel for us!)
  • Shaping: how to easily get them all evenly sized and perfectly rounded
  • Making the crosses and the glaze: refine these finishing touches to top your perfect hot cross buns

Together we’ll sit and share freshly baked buns, warm from the oven. Enjoy them the way you like them – butter, homemade jams and other delectables will be on the table!

Then take home a special little something from us to get you on your baking way.
