Bakeworks Hot Cross Buns

Review

Bakeworks Hot Cross Buns 6pk 420g $6.99

Pros

Fantastic texture when first bought, just like regular hot cross buns, and toasted nicely. These are also dairy and egg free which is a bonus for those who can’t eat either.  Also low in fat at 2.3g total fat per bun.

Cons

Very bland in flavour, I remember hot cross buns being full of spice and fruity goodness, these are sadly very lacking. I had to sprinkle cinnamon on mine. I gave my Mum a bite also (she’s non gluten free) she commented that the texture was nice but like me found them to fall very short of a regular hot cross bun in the spice department.  Despite apricots being listed in the ingredients we could not find any in the pack I bought. You have to store these in the refridgerator in warmer weather which affects the texture unfortunately.

Bottom Line

The bottom line - if you are looking to satisfy your hot cross bun craving this easter then sadly this product will not hit the spot.  For the price you pay you should not have to add extra spice/flavour.

Agree with the above lovely texture would have liked more spices though.
