Black Star Pastry prep 15,000 hot cross buns for Sydney’s Easter rush

Given that they are some of the most popular Easter treats its year, it’s no surprise to see Black Star Pastry bring back their famous translation of the classic Hot Cross Buns.

Available now until Monday 5th April, Sydney’s most beloved bakery will be dolling out these dense, cushiony, sticky, spicy, sweet, 100% vegan buns to those keen on something a bit more premium to munch on in between all those chocolate eggs.

Given Black Star Pastry’s presence throughout the city has never been so extensive (augmented by a recent move from tucked-behind-king-street to King Street), it’s now much easier to get your hands on what’s year-on-year touted as some of the best hot cross buns in the city. And given (un)healthy competition from the likes of Gelato Messina, that’s a big deal.

Over 15,000 buns have been hand-rolled in the BSP kitchen for this year, with each priced at $4.50 (or six for $25).

To find out where to pick them up head to Black Star Pastry.
