After much investigation about the origin of hot cross buns to write a little something about , I came across the NOT CROSS BUN .
This variation has a smiley face instead of a cross , a variation first sold commercially by Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses in Australia in 2014 in a response to supermarkets selling the buns as early as Boxing day .
The smiley face is a reference to being “ not cross” or “not angry “
Then 6 weeks before Easter would change them to crosses to relate to the traditional meaning.
You can retrieve all the information on Wikipedia – “//https:en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Not_cross_bun&oldid=698782184”
Whatever the meaning the smiley little faces are a great way to put a smile on any ones face,
After many requests for a choc chip version of our buns will be making a few batches “ not cross”this Easter
Available at Abhis Bread South Fremantle and our Farmers Markets at Stirling and Manning this weekend
