Go with traditional flavours or try some vegan options

Traditionally eaten on Good Friday to mark the end of Lent, hot cross buns have become quite the commodity in recent years. Below, check out some of the best bakeries in Singapore which are now dishing out these sweet buns for you to take home and enjoy with your gang.

Baker & Cook

Available from now till Apr 13, find a couple of freshly-baked hot cross bun options at artisanal bakery chain Baker & Cook. There’s the Traditional Hot Cross Buns which we expect will feature currants, the Double Chocolate Hot Cross Buns that’ll offer some rich chocolatey goodness, as well as the Vegan Hot Cross Buns for those with dietary restrictions. Plus, for every pack of six purchased, $1 will be donated to the Breast Cancer Foundation. So you’ll be doing a little good when you pick up some buns.

Bakery Brera & Fine Foods

Well-known for their fluffy and buttery hot cross buns, Bakery Brera & Fine Foods will definitely put you in the mood for Easter. Snap up their wallet-friendly buns; the new and improved Chocolate Hot Cross Bun utilises Cacao Barry chocolate powder and chips, and is truly as tantalising as it sounds.


Always a trustworthy option, readily pick up delicious hot cross buns at Cedele’s various outlets, or have them delivered to you. Apart from the Classic Hot Cross Buns, find the Pandan Coconut, Orange Cranberry and even Spanish Onion Cheddar Hot Cross Buns. If you’re craving for more, they’ve got some flourless cakes and cookies for Easter too.

But other treats are worth a try as well; check out their Carrot Cake, Easter Hens chocolate, and even the Easter Chocolate Lollipops.
