Hot Cross Bun Pancakes

Brace yourselves. I’m about to do something really mean.

“Hot Cross Buns.”

“Hot Cross Buns.”

“One a penny. Two a penny.”

“Hot Cross Buns.”

Hahahahaha! Now that song is going to be stuck in your head for the rest of the day, like it has been stuck in mine ever since I made these Hot Cross Bun Pancakes last week.

Okay. Okay. I’m sorry.

I’ll make it up to you by leaving you with this amazing recipe that you should make for your fam on Friday morning. They taste every bit as spicy, sweet, and festive as the buns but are waaayyyy less work.

And look on the bright side. At least with the song on constant replay in your head, you aren’t as likely to forget to make them.
