Brisbane bakery removes crosses from hot cross buns, with pundit calling the move “awake madness”.
A bakery is being mocked for its ‘awakened madness’ after renaming an iconic Easter treat.
Traditionally eaten on Good Friday to mark the end of Christian Lent, Hot Cross Buns are a spiced sweet bun, usually made with fruit and decorated with a frosting cross.
Throughout Christianity, different parts of a hot cross bun are given a specific meaning, with the cross symbolizing Jesus’ crucifixion and the spices representing those used in the embalming of his body at his funeral.
But a local bakery in Brisbane’s inner west has decided to remove the cross from the top of its Hot Cross Buns and rename the sweet treat Easter Time Buns.
Co-founder and former CEO of bakery chain Brumby’s, Michael “The Professor” Sherlock spotted the name change and described it as “crazy awakened.”

This is just another case of awakened insanity that removed the Hot Cross Buns name,” Sherlock told the Courier Mail.
‘That wouldn’t have happened when I was at Brumby’s.
“Easter doesn’t go without hot cross buns. They have been synonymous with Easter celebrations in England since the 12th century.”
The Sentinel Property Group executive said he keeps an eye on bakeries around Easter, when the industry usually booms with sales of Hot Cross Buns on what he dubbed “Bun Thursday.”
On Wednesday, meanwhile, Woolworths pulled two sets of Hot Cross Buns from itself over concerns the delicious treat could be contaminated with metal filings.
The recall is limited to Woolworths 6pk Fruit Hot Cross Buns and Woolworths 9pk Fruit Hot Cross Mini, which were only available at Woolworths Dural in north-west Sydney.
The contaminated products have a best before date of April 5, 2023.

The NSW Food and Safety Authority warned that eating the recalled hot cross buns could result in illness or injury.
“The recall is due to the presence of foreign objects (metal),” the statement said. “Metal containing food products can cause illness/injury if eaten.”
Customers who have purchased any of the Hot Cross Buns are advised to return them to the store for a refund.
