its a make or break question.

Hot cross buns.

Toasted or just buttered?

Happy Good Friday from a toasted household !

Vital issue!

Warmed through, buttered smile

Just halved and spread with cream cheese here.

Either warmed through or toasted as long as they are hot and oozing butter, (and accompanied by a cup of hot tea).

Alima Fri 25-Mar-16 08:18:23

Nice and fresh and doughy, no grease (butter).

Jane10 Fri 25-Mar-16 08:31:03

In the bin. Toasted cheese loaf and butter instead!

Lightly toasted with Lurpack butter.

Depends - if its breakfast- toasted if its tea -warmed.

Bellanonna Fri 25-Mar-16 09:01:17

Not toasted, or even warmed. Lots if butter. Tea.
Happy Good Friday.
PS: Fish day here

Thankfully I do not like them!

Penstemmon Fri 25-Mar-16 09:15:09

Hot! The clue is in the title though the oozing with butter is not!! Fresh from the oven is best but I did not make any this year so it was toasted for me..just eaten it..... delicious local bakery concoction!

ninathenana Fri 25-Mar-16 09:22:42

Each half spread with butter.
I do like them toasted but don't often bother.

shysal Fri 25-Mar-16 09:24:33

Just buttered when fresh, toasted when stale. Not having any though [halo]

Indinana Fri 25-Mar-16 09:39:05

Warmed in the oven for 20 minutes so they're crispy on the outside and soft and steamy on the inside. Then buttered. Bliss!

I always find the bought ones too spicy so we have bara brith with butter instead. Home-made ones are very nice without the heavy dosing of mixed spice.

jinglbellsfrocks Fri 25-Mar-16 09:57:23

Cold, spread with Benecol, which is tastier than butter.

Alea Fri 25-Mar-16 10:18:43

Toasted or at least warmed and WITH BUTTER .
If God hadn't meant for us to eat butter he wouldn't have invented butter dishes cows smile

BTW no Easter emoji yet?? sad🐣🐣🐣

glammanana Fri 25-Mar-16 10:22:26

Toasted or warm must have plenty of butter available please.

Alima Fri 25-Mar-16 10:22:36

Cows were invented for cheese!

henetha Fri 25-Mar-16 10:24:01

Forgot to buy any! So crumpets as usual for me.

thatbags Fri 25-Mar-16 10:40:01

I prefer toasted teacakes, buttered. I haven't got any of those either, but I do have a creme egg to look forward to this afternoon.

NanaandGrampy Fri 25-Mar-16 10:47:36

I think you'll find cows were invented for steak smile

hildajenniJ Fri 25-Mar-16 19:48:06

Benecol, tastier than butter!! No, no. If you must have a substitute Clover is better.grin

Synonymous Fri 25-Mar-16 20:14:21

No substitutions - butter only! Cows are for calves here so that we get beef and milk. smile

Synonymous Fri 25-Mar-16 20:15:42

Forgot the buns - hot out of the oven or toasted if the following day. smile
