Six to Try: Buns as hot as Singapore’s weath...

Six to Try: Buns as hot as Singapore’s weather

Joe-Dough-Food-on-Fork

With Good Friday and the Easter weekend just around the corner, we have searched high-and-low all over Singapore for these tasty Hot Cross Buns!

Marked with a cross on the top and commonly eaten on Good Friday, a hot cross bun is a spiced sweet bun traditionally made with dried fruits and raisins. However, as a multicultural nation who loves to eat, the hot cross buns found in Singapore comes in a variety of local-inspired flavours. Lucky enough for us, they taste damn good and we cannot get enough of these sizzling buns.

1. Artisan Boulangerie Co

Chocolate Orange Hot Cross Buns

Artisan Boulangerie Co - Hot Cross Buns - Food on Fork

First on the list we have the Chocolate Orange Hot Cross Bun from Artisan Boulangerie Co. Glazed with orange syrup (made by reducing orange juice and sugar), this is a more updated version of the traditional hot cross bun and is still very English taste-wise. You can also find huge chunks of melted chocolate chips in every bite!

2. Baker & Cook

Chocolate Chip Hot Cross Bun

Baker & Cook - Hot Cross Buns - Food on Fork

There are two different flavours of hot cross buns available at Baker & Cook. You can choose between the traditional or the more popular Chocolate Chip Hot Cross Bun, or be like us and get both! We definitely prefer having the chocolate one and it’s almost like having chocolate flavoured bread but much denser.

3. Cedele

Pandan Coconut Hot Cross Bun

 Cedele - Hot Cross Buns - Food on Fork

This is one of the more local-inspired hot cross bun. Interestingly it tasted really good! The richness of the pandan is complimented by the refreshing crunch from the shredded coconut bits. A definite Singapore must-try!

4. Goodwood Park Hotel

Classic Hot Cross Bun

Good Wood Park Hotel - Hot Cross Buns - Food on Fork

Goodwood Park is known for their durian this, durian that and durian everything. Sadly, there isn’t a durian hot cross bun. However, if they do have durian hot cross bun, it will definitely stand out and do very well. Having said that, the Classic Hot Cross Bun is by far of the best quality, moist and sweet in every bite.

P.s. Dear Goodwood Park Hotel, we like to reserve a dozen durian hot cross buns should you decide to sell that at your deli one day. Many thanks in advance.

5. Joe & Dough

Salted Egg Yolk Hot Cross Bun

Joe-Dough - Hot Cross Buns - Food on Fork

Taking Singapore by storm is this charcoal-coloured Salted Egg Yolk Hot Cross Bun. Ooziness of the salted egg yolk is off the charts. You can expect it to drip everywhere as soon as you bite into it. A messy and yet very satisfying hot cross bun.

Lastly, we have the Banana Walnut Hot Cross Bun from Swiss Bake. For people who have had banana bread before, you will find the taste somewhat similar but more texture from the overwhelming walnut bits. Go bananas and nuts over these buns and don’t forget to have a great Easter weekend!
