It's easy to get out of bed and hit the road for work when a Dianda's Hot Cross Bun pitstop is on the schedule. For the next five weeks (until Easter, natch), the plan is to consume as many of the sweet yeasty pastries as possible. A Hot Cross Bun is a glazed, currant studded wonder, topped with a lemony custard frosting. The cross is a religious symbol for Good Friday. In Christian School as a child, I was taught the song "Hot Cross Buns," which reinforced the food-celebration connection in my young mind. Dianda's Hot Cross Buns include mildly sweet red and green candied fruit that seems like a gentle throwback. Hot Cross Buns make for a sweet beginning to the day, but can easily fill in your dessert table.
