There’s nothing like a yummy hot cross bun! Here at Casuarina Square, we look forward to hot cross bun season every year.
The perfect combination of juicy fruit and spices like nutmeg and cinnamon make hot cross buns a custom to look forward to every year. The tasty aroma of hot cross buns coming out from the oven and being slathered with butter is a tradition that many people enjoy and share with their loved ones.
This year, the classic hot cross bun has been given a playful twist on the traditional flavour, with some of our retailers offering hot cross buns in a range of new and tasty flavours. We’re seeing a huge range of interesting varieties that are sure to please everyone's tastes.

We’ve picked some of our favourite new hot cross bun flavours below!

It’s so hard to walk past Bakers Delight without being enticed by the delicious aromas of their famous hot cross buns! Bakers Delight hot cross buns are baked fresh every day, and their dried fruit is soaked overnight to make it super juicy.

Bakers Delight have included real pink lady apples into their tasty Apple & Cinnamon Hot Cross Buns for an amazing flavour, and their Choc Chip Hot Cross Bun is a decadent twist, with over 100 choc chips in every single bun!

The Mocha Hot Cross Bun is a bold iteration on the classic, with a rich coffee/chocolate flavour imbued throughout the bun. And for those who don’t like dried fruit, the Fruitless Hot Cross Buns are full of spice and warm flavours.

There really is a hot cross bun for everyone at Bakers Delight!
