Product Description

Fruited hot cross buns made with sultanas, Californian raisins, Cornish butter and citrus zest. The bakers crafting out hot cross buns have been baking for us for over 20 years. With each fresh batch they carefully hand-pipe a cross onto the top of each bun and then hand-glaze them with a soft bristle brush. The spicy, fragrant dough is baked in batches to ensure perfect flavour and texture. The result is a soft and delicious, hand-finished bun with a spicy sweetness. A perfect treat for any time of day served warm and toasted with melting butter.

traditional hot cross buns

These lovely buns are perfectly formed and are delicious toasted, served with butter or jam. Thankfully Waitrose have produced a real hot cross bun rather than those heavy, squishy, cakes so overloaded with fruit that they are untoastable that have replaced hot cross buns in some supermarkets

Dry and not much fruit

These are no where need as good and m&s hot cross buns - not much fruit but main problem is they are dry. Even toasted, these are mediocre buns.

dry and stale

So disappointed and very surprised at the poor quality of these hot cross buns. Like other reviews these were not soft and juicy but hard and crumbly. Come on Waitrose - this isn't like you!

nearly as good as the Mark's and Spencer's HCBs!

These are lovely and soft and they look and taste homemade, not quite as 'scoff straight from the packet' as M&S luxury hot cross buns, but you can get these delivered!
