These lightly sweet yeasted buns are delicately spiced and studded with plump currants. Synonymous with the Easter holiday, a cross is marked on top of each bun and they are traditionally eaten in reverence on Good Friday.
Most of you probably already know this bread has rich history with ties to the Easter holiday. Historically, they are eaten by people in Christian countries on Good Friday, and the cross on top symbolizes the crucifixion. In some countries they are offered year-round, but to me they’ll always be a harbinger of spring.
