I love a bit of a challenge and when Woolworths approached me to jazz up the humble hot cross bun I couldn't quite say no. I decided to approach the campaign by coming up with 9 different but easy toppings for the traditional Woolworths Hot Cross bun which can be prepared in under 10 minutes. All these ingredients are available in store. I've prepared a step-by-step guide on how to recreate these 9 savoury but sweet HCB's. Enjoy and let me know your thoughts!
Prepare Toppings: Blueberries, Radish, Figs, Strawberries, Salmon, Cherry tomatoes, Avocado & Cucumber.
Buy two packets of Hot Cross buns as they come in single packets of six. Arrange the nine hot cross buns to be sliced in half and save the other half to be used later. Apply a generous amount of cream cheese to the base of each hot cross bun.
Add desired toppings and seasoning as you wish. I have selected toppings which are in season.
Enjoy with friends and family!
For the second Hot Cross Bun topping creation - I decided to create a dessert which consists of a small as well as a medium sized hot cross bun. By slicing them in halves and adding Nutella, sliced bananas, strawberries and whipped cream I was able to create this beautiful mess in just 5 minutes. I hope my hot cross buns have inspired you to get a little more inventive this Easter! ;)
