Every year I think of making Hot Cross Buns. I love the idea of them, the history and tradition. If only I would embrace a little more advance planning I’m sure they would be delicious!
And I do believe that it’s not about the bunny, that the true message and significance of our celebration of Easter is that empty tomb and our victory over death in the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
So what happened? Why am I, once again, turning to prepackaged refrigerated rolls this Easter weekend? Why have I skipped the Hot Cross Buns and made Bunny Buns instead?
At the convergence of attending to seasonal details and running short of time there are occasions when I have to find a way to dress up the table with what I have on hand. These Bunny Breakfast Buns fit the bill this year. They are a spring treat that is practical, fun and seasonally grounded. The recipe is quick and easy and while it is, perhaps, light on spiritual significance it is still sure to delight the children in your family or just add a little smile to your holiday brunch.
