Two of the Best Hot-cross Buns in the Bath Area

There are many special things to celebrate at Easter time.  For us at NearHome, these include Hot Cross Buns.  So, we wanted to share two of our favourites from in and around the Bath area.

The Thoughtful Bakery

We discovered these delicious hot cross buns the first time we visited The Thoughtful Bakery and we were blown away. Seven years on, we still love them and here’s why…

    • Un-ashamedly scrummy!
    • Lovely light texture
    • Generous size with a slightly sweet glaze on top

The Rye Bakery

The Rye Bakery’s hot cross buns are, like all their baking, delicious with heaps of flavour…

    • Utterly unpretentious
    • Great mix of sweet spices with an abundance of fruit

TOP TIP: if, in the unlikely event that your hot cross buns are not eaten on the same day, they freeze well, can be warmed in the oven, or are great toasted!

Both the Thoughtful Bakery and the Rye Bakery are very popular, especially locals, so we would recommend ordering in advance or arriving early and being prepared to queue.  It’s so worth it!
