The Hot Cross Bun, traditionally served on Good Friday and Easter, is a yeasted sweet bread dough. It is scented with spices such as ground cinnamon and nutmeg and sometimes with fresh lemon peel. (I've also seen recipes with allspice and cloves) and generously studded with currants and raisins. Before baking, these rich, sweet buns are slashed (cut) with a cross, representing Christ and the Crucifixion, and then baked. Once baked and while still hot from the oven, they are iced with a lemon-scented simple confectioner's glaze and then served right away, hence the moniker "hot".
