The Story Behind the Bake

Spiced Bun, a traditional bun, that is a Jamaican equivalent of a Hot Cross bun. While it is traditionally eaten over the Easter period, it is now enjoyed all year round. It's packed full of spices and dried fruit - just wait for the aroma that is created while the bun is baking, divine! The spiced bun is versatile and can be made using yeast for a more bread like bun or baking powder, for a cake like texture.

Growing up in a Jamaican parentage household, we had bun with butter and cheese every Easter. Although, my mum usually bought a bun on a weekly basis, and I would often have a slice with strawberry jam.

While I used a traditional recipe, I added more spice to make it my own! I incorporated half a teaspoon of ground ginger and a pinch of ground cloves. I used golden raisins instead of dark raisins for added sweetness, plumpness and  moisture to my bun.
