What happened to the sixth hot cross bun? (by Lausanne Morgan / Public Domain)


While hot cross buns are traditionally eaten only on Good Friday to signify the end of Lent, it's common to see the distinctively crossed bun in stores as early as January.

As Easter approaches, buns are rising in bakeries throughout Adelaide. Start your search for the best hot cross buns in Adelaide with these top 5.

CJ's Bakery - 39c Beach Rd, Christies Beach - (08) 8384 1486
After winning the Baking Association of Australia's competition for the nation's best hot cross buns, we've been watching the dough slowly rise in this no frills bakery.

Batch after batch of the vegan buns are devoured for that classic mix of cinnamon and dried fruit blended in a soft, satisfying dough.

For the non-traditionalists, the choc-chip variety are a hit, selling out by lunchtime.

CJ's Bakery is open 8am to 5pm.


Jenny's Gourmet Bakery - 81 Glen Osmond Road, Eastwood - (08) 8272 9699
Be drawn in by the aura of the golden cross boldly topping the sourdough bun.

The aroma of nutmeg and the satisfying bite through firm crust, soft bun and melting butter will satisfy. As you savour the aftertaste of sticky-sweet glaze, it's only human to be tempted back for seconds.

Jenny's Gourmet Bakery is open Mon to Fri 8am - 5pm and Sat 8am - 3.30pm.

Bakery on O'Connell - 128 O'Connell St, Adelaide - (08) 8361 7377
The bakers at O'Connell have perfected the formula of the Easter treat with vegan hot cross buns.

Their recipe mixes bursts of sweetness from juicy currants, laced with aromatic spice.

Bakery on O'Connell is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


Dulwich Bakery - 66 Dulwich Ave, Dulwich - (08) 8364 1836
The traditional hot cross bun at Dulwich has a beautiful glaze to tempt the sweet tooth.

Pause before eating to admire the aroma of cardamom and the lightness of the bun, making the original recipe a moreish hit.

After creating the world's biggest vanilla slice at over 800kgs, the Dulwich bakers have packed their HCBs with 40% fruit.

Dulwich Bakery is open Mon to Fri 7am - 6pm, Sat 7am - 5pm and Sun 8am - 5pm. They also have bakeries in Malvern, Collinswood, Unley, Glenelg South, Pasadena Green Shopping Centre, Beulah Park, Henley Beach and Grange.

Perryman's Bakery - 54 Tynte St, North Adelaide - (08) 8267 2766
For over 80 years, the ovens at Perryman's have been hot with Easter treats.

Baked with the same traditional recipe, they've been enticing local school kids away from fast food chains to grab an after-school snack.

The airy buns have firm crosses that won't budge as you slice the warm vegan dough in half to slather on butter.

Perryman's Bakery is open Mon to Fri 8am - 5pm, Sat 8:30am – 2:30pm and Sun 11am – 2.30pm.

Kytons bakery at Edwardstown makes a really good bun. And they also have. Fruchocs one to be truly SA patriotic!
They are certainly available at Foodland and other places. Their laminations are famous and their Christmas puddings are the best and made the old fashioned way.
