Hot cross bun origins are of many which I won’t dwell onto.
I would love to share with you one lovely notion I picked up from Wiki – Sharing a hot cross bun with another is supposed to ensure friendship throughout the coming year, particularly if “Half for you and half for me, Between us two shall goodwill be” is said at the time. Because there is a cross on the buns, some say they should be kissed before being eaten.
Hot Cross Buns make a return to their menu, with new kid on the block, savoury creation Cheese Onion Mustard leading the bakery’s offerings. Familiar favourites Classic, Almond and Chocolate Walnut also steal the show, packing a flavourful yet guiltless punch.
I cut the savoury cheese onion mustard bun into halves, have a slice of cheese on each halve and toast them until melted, it was such a simple and satisfying lunch.
Chocolate Spring Cake. This Easter classic of Chocolate Cake is blended with juicy, succulent Raspberries, creating an ultra-moist and delicate texture that is rich to the bone in antioxidants* (an element present in both chocolate and raspberry). The luscious cake is also tastefully sweetened with Organic Unrefined Sugar, an ingredient used in all Cedele baked goods.
I appreciate the tart raspberry paste incorporated into the cake batter itself, it counters the chocolaty palette. I could feel the grits from the blended fruits on the tongue.
Easter Sandwich Special (available at their bakery cafes) – a filling of Bacon & Cheese or Ham & Cheese sandwiched within a pillowy Cheese Onion Mustard Hot Cross Bun. The set comes with Organic Coffee or Wellness Tea.
Cedele’s Easter Promotion runs from Monday, 11th March to Monday, 1st April 2013.
You will be pleased to know Cedele uses Grapeseed Oil in their cakes which is a great brain food that promotes good skin and advocates anti-aging. At Cedele, all of the foods are free of trans-fat.
Many thanks to Leen from Touch Comm for arranging the Cedele’s Easter items for tasting.
