Hot Cross Buns
Phillippa's hot cross buns have just hit stores and online! A chewy, moist, pert and aromatic bun made with organic vine-fruit, Phillippa's hot cross buns are baked with fresh spices and house made candied peel from oranges sourced at the farmers' market. Like Phillippa's famous bread, the hot cross buns are made with minimal yeast and use a slow fermentation process leaving them to ripen in their own time. This slow, natural proofing creates a distinctive taste and texture and allows remarkably complex flavours to develop from very simple ingredients. A distinctive feature of Phillippa's hot cross buns is the absence of added gluten, malt or ascorbic acid, common to most commercially made baked breads and buns.
A box of 6 is $18
