    Default The Great Debate :)

    At the risk of throwing a cat amongst the pigeons.....


    My DH insists that the only way to eat a Hot Cross Bun is to first toast it, and then butter it.


    I, on the other hand, think that you should not toast Hot Cross Buns as they lose much of their flavour (spices and fruit peel) in the toasting process.


    'Real' butter, in thick lashings, is obviously required. That must be not negotiable!


    I won't even get into the debacle of fruitless Hot Cross Buns, lol


    Annnnndddd.......GO!

    I don't like hot cross buns 😱 but DS and DH love them and they always toast them lightly so just warm with real butter

    Either really lightly toasted or quickly microwaved, then I put way too much butter on 🙊

    Toasted with real butter is best, but untoasted with butter is ok too.

    I like to butter the lot of them then chuck them in a low oven for a few minutes. Warm but without being "toasty" and the butter melts into them.

    No don't ruin them by toasting definitely just as they are with thick layer of butter. I am from UK and have heard a tradition of serving them over there with cheese!!!!!! Which I couldn't imagine

    Fresh with butter (or marg). or slightly stale toasted with butter (or marg). It all depends how old they are. ALWAYS with fruit - none of this fruitless, choc chip or sticky date nonsense.

    Warm (my favourite is wrap in foil and in the oven for 10-15 minutes but that takes too long so generally just a quick buzz in the microwave) with butter or margarine. I find warming them brings out the spice flavour 😀
