You can now order almost any flavour of hot cross bun your taste buds desire, but Geraldton bakeries say most customers still can’t go past the traditional fruit recipe.

The spiced buns marked with a cross are typically eaten warmed up and smothered in butter on Good Friday, which commemorates the death of Jesus Christ. Queens Supa IGA has been baking chocolate, plain and fruit hot cross buns in store for about two months, with a member of the store’s bakery department saying the traditional flavour had been the most popular this year.

Aussie Pastries & Batavia Coast Bakery also sell three flavours of the Easter treat, but it is the fruit hot cross bun which has been the favourite.

Wonda Bake on Marine Terrace has racks of flavoured buns, with the traditional recipe again the favourite of Geraldton shoppers.

The bakery’s Cam Lui said the hot cross buns had been very popular with customers and would be available in store until the end of the Easter long weekend.
