Hot cross buns are a traditional treat, invented by Christians in Rome, to eat during Easter. Designed to celebrate the resurrection of Christ, the sweet dough is baked with raisins, and usually served toasted with butter. Jesus Christ would not approve of people celebrating his resurrection with factory-farmed and plastic-wrapped treats.
Fluffy Vegan Hot Cross Buns (The Banana Diaries) are sweet and full of warming spices and sultanas. You’ll also pipe them with the perfect classic cross.
Keep hot cross buns away from pets due to toxic ingredients like fresh dough (can expand in the stomach), dried fruits, nutmeg and chocolate. Also avoid xylitol (just a few dropped crumbs can be lethal).
Easter is the traditional Catholic festival to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. What puts many people off the Christian religion is the way that some churches treat animals. But in fact, Jesus protected birds to sheep and some of the best-known saints in history (like St Francis of Assisi) protected animals (it was said that fish would jump out of the air and birds would fly to him, to listen to his stories!)
