A round bun, containing currants and spices, and traditionally eaten in England on Good Friday, but so popular they can be found for most of the year.
Buns are decorated on the top with a full-width dough cross. This dates back to early Saxon times, but probably had pagan roots which were conveniently taken-up by the new Christian religion.
