Fruits, Spices, and All Things Nice viv's REALLY HOT Hot Cross

Six Spices, Three Fruits, and a Cross Unlike Any Other . . .

It’s not a thick criss-cross smear of flour-and-water paste, we’ve swirled in a touch of clarified butter kissed with zested sugar, and piped it sleek and slim. The result? A cross that’s elegant, citrus-y, crispy even, on a toasted bun—definitely not gummy, bland and blah.

Cool, Solo Buns

Did you notice our buns are baked whole, not those pull-apart ones? Why fret over having to peel them apart at the perforation when you can just grab one and dig in?

Three Fruits Tucked in a Soft, Light Crumb

Pull one apart and you’ll find soft and fluffy saying hello, with a happy chorus of candied citrus peels, dried currants and sultanas

Time, Our Secret Ingredient

We’re not going to say “We bake with love”—that’s a given—but we bake by honoring that age-old ingredient: Time. We let our buns rise not once, but twice. Slow, steady, no rush. That’s more fermenting, more flavor, more fluff, more joy!

What's In Our Six-Spice Blend?

Chinese five spice, cinnamon, clove, coriander, ginger, nutmeg

A Glaze That Echoes Our Citrus Peels

Our glaze ain't gelatin-thickened syrup, it's made from good ol' marmalade
