Bow down to the bun.

Around this time of year it is traditional to exchange chocolate eggs. I'm sure you're all aware of this.

This is because Jesus was reborn appaz, eggs symbolise birth, and chocolate is nice.

Eating an Easter egg feels like you're just doing what THE MAN would want you to do.

"Why am I eating this over-priced chocolate?"

"Because it's traditional."

"Can I have a normal Dairy Milk bar?"

"Only the ones that come free with the egg."

You see Easter eggs are what THEY want you to eat. 😦

Hot cross buns are not limited to butter, they go brilliantly with cheese. TRUST ME.

It's that perfect marriage of the sweet and the savory that you're not sure will work, but totally does.

There is no limit to what the humble hot cross bun can handle. Look at this brave bun carrying this perfect scoop of ice cream.

Yes that is a hot cross bun ice cream sandwich. And yes you can go and make one right this second.

While hot cross buns are a massive step up from bread.

Your regular toast fears the weeks that hot cross buns grace our supermarket shelves.

You could even make your own hot cross buns and feel like a king!

BBC good food says they're "moderately easy".

This Easter celebrate in style, like this baby. Choose the bun not the egg.

Or have both, that is also fine.
