Guyanese warm cross buns are small and round having a cross on them.I suppose we inherited them from our British masters.As Easter Weekend kite traveling is special to Guyana so are Jamaican Easter Buns which, as far as I do know ,are only obtainable in Jamaica or in sizeable Jamaican communities.
My emotions goes again to the eighty’s when I considered in fascination as our ‘helper’ Maureen manufactured Easter Buns. It had been a development that integrated stout,raisins,eggs,merged spice,nutmeg and cinnamon.Jamaican Easter Buns are usually eaten with processed cheese obtainable in substantial cans.
