Hot Cross Buns Rhyme

Nursery Rhyme & History

 

Religious meaning of Hot Cross Buns
Hot cross buns are a small, spicey fruit cake decorated with a white cross as shown in the picture of our Hot Cross Buns. Generally Hot Cross Buns are served with a butter spread. Hot cross buns were hawked by street-sellers to the cry of "Hot cross buns!" around the the nineteenth century. This particular way of selling wares is demonstrated in the movie "Oliver!" based on the novel by Charles Dickens. Hot Cross Buns are generally sold at Easter to celebrate the religious significance of the resurrection of Christ following his death on the cross in the Easter Christian festival.

The picture below depicts the Mr. Bumble character from Dickens Oliver Twist. He clearly enjoyed eating Hot Cross Buns!
