"Combine two favorite Easter recipes into one with these Carrot Cake Hot Cross Buns! These spiced buns include carrots, raisins and chopped walnuts. Before we get into the fun carrot cake twist on these buns, let’s chat for a hot minute about classic Hot Cross Buns. These buns are a cross between a cinnamon roll and a dinner roll. They are bready like a dinner roll, but they are spiced like a cinnamon roll. Hot Cross Buns are often made with dried fruit, and they always have an iconic cross on top. These buns are traditionally eaten on Good Friday, and the cross is meant to represent Jesus’ crucifixion. This past year, I got to thinking. Carrot Cake is another Easter favorite around our house, and our version of carrot cake is essentially a spiced cake that includes raisins. The flavors are somewhat similar to Hot Cross Buns. The natural next step was to create a mashup of these two classic springtime recipes!"
