Butter for your Easter Buns
For some Easter is all about Hot Cross Buns. We are lucky to have artisan bread makers and local bakeries open for business around Melbourne showcasing some amazing hot cross buns.
Shout out to our friends at Wild Life Bakery Brunswick whose Hot Cross Buns are one of our favourites. They’re available for online orders for next-day pickup from their Albert Street store.
The best accompaniment for your hot cross buns this Easter is traditional quality butter.
Harper & Blohm Cheese Shop have a selection of the finest cultured butter from Australia and France. Cultured butter has a richer and more lactic flavour than commercially produced butter and will make your hot cross buns that extra delicious.
