Easter One Dish Wonders | Eat & Drink
We don’t *really* need an excuse to stuff ourselves silly with chocolate but Easter is approaching so it feels like the right thing to do. And we don’t need to stop at a regular old chocolate egg, not when we could be feasting on all these holiday specials too.
Crosstown’s Hot Cross Bun Doughnut
Award-winning doughnut joint Crosstown are welcoming back their Easter special, the Hot Cross Bun doughnut – and this year, it’s completely vegan. The limited-edition special is made with Easter spiced dough, filled with cinnamon custard, with Seville orange glaze and topped off with a spiced cross and candied orange peel. You can pop into your local Crosstown to grab an individual doughnut, or indulge in a six or twelve pack. Why not? It is Easter after all.
Available from 20th March – 11th April 2023
