Celebrate the long weekend with a freshly baked hot cross bun in-hand.
It’s that time of year again. You know, the time when we swap thongs for boots and exchange fresh salads for hearty pub feeds. Autumn. The time of year when we embrace all things cosy and get ready for the cooler months ahead.
And one of our favourite moments in the autumn calendar is Easter. There are a few reasons why: we score not one but two public holidays. We get a free pass to eat chocolate at all hours of the day for a four-day period. And best of all? Sydney’s top bakeries are slinging freshly baked hot cross buns.
