I'm 37 and I've never eaten one. My dad has just delivered 2 Hot Cross Buns....and looked at me like I was insane when I said I'd never tasted one!

Do I eat it as is with butter, toast it, something more exciting?

Toasted with proper salted butter is my favourite.

I know someone who eats them with marmite. That's not recommended.

Lightly toasted spread with a thick layer of real butter And a smear of marmalade. One is never enough!

I just eat it as it is. Kids have it with by. Husband has it toasted with butter and a cup of tea.

I prefer them untoasted without butter if they're nice and moist. If they're crap then toast them and add lots of butter/jam to make them palatable lol.

They're nice with lemon curd too.

Always toasted with butter or Nutella.

Okay, waiting for DD to go to bed and I'll be trying them with a cheeky Sauvignon blanc

Toasted with more butter than is healthy.
DS also likes his with jam or Nutella.

Toasted with butter ideally. Untoasted with butter if toasting impossible. Have never eaten without butter.

Today, we had them hot out of the oven, just as they came (can't get them here, so i have to make the damm things - 2 dozen this year to date).
Tomorrow, DS1 will have them split, toasted and buttered for breakfast. I'll probably do the same as a mid morning snack.

Split in half, toasted, lightly buttered and a slice of old cheddar

BeachyKeen Sat 15-Apr-17 18:16:26

And a tea of course

I toast one, for a short amount of time as they take much less time that toast toast, and butter it. While I'm waiting for that one I quite often just butter a cold one and eat that.

Either cold or toasted with butter. Yummy!

DP cuts them in half, butters the base then puts the top on and eats it. He's batshit wrong, the only way to eat a hot cross bun is to cut it in half, butter each half and eat separately. Ideally not toasted, but lightly toasted if it's a bit past its best.

CaptainHammer Sat 15-Apr-17 18:17:23

When fresh just cut in half with a little butter. Otherwise toasted with lots of butter.
Mmmm hot cross buns

Toasted with butter smile Not had one this year! Kids have them any way they're going - plain, with butter or toasted!

StrumpersPlunkett Sat 15-Apr-17 18:18:15

Are you in the UK?
