Hot Cross Buns LIVE – 14th April 2022 (10.00am-12.30pm)

Bake along with Anneka Manning

"I had never made Hot Cross Buns as they always seemed too difficult. I always enjoy Anneka's way of teaching – I find I learn so much and I love the way she supports her teachings with the science behind it. I find the live sessions work really well, and I learn so much from them ... being able to ask questions live is such a bonus. This course is a great way to learn something which you think is difficult but Anneka makes it all so simple. Absolutely do it!" – Christine Kirk, Wyoming, NSW

Learn to bake the most traditional of Easter breads – right from your very own kitchen!
Hot Cross Buns Live is a fun and casual 2.5-hour live baking session where you will learn to make your own traditional Hot Cross Buns – just in time for the Easter weekend!

Anneka Manning will take you through the process step by step, sharing all of her practical tips and tricks along the way. You will have the ability to bake along with her as well as ask any questions that arise as you mix, knead, prove and shape your dough together throughout the session. You can either bake your buns immediately or Anneka will share how to prove the dough overnight so it's ready to bake first thing the next morning.

The live session will be supported by printable recipes and resources which will become your go-to Hot Cross Bun baking kit every Easter. Anneka will also share a number of recipe variations and some ideas of what to do with leftovers (if there are any!)

At the end of this session, you will come away not only with new-found skills and confidence but a dozen just-baked warm buns ready to smother in butter!



"I definitely got more than I expected from the class. Easy step-by-step instructions provided by Anneka and the opportunity to ask questions, no matter how 'silly', while making the buns meant I got the best experience possible. It was just perfect. Definitely recommend."
Glynis Smalley, Melbourne

"I enjoy Anneka's classes and always learn a lot ... It makes a difference to watch and learn, and be able to ask questions, rather than just read a recipe. It was fun and enjoyable to bake along and have Anneka give feedback. A highlight for me are all the tips and tricks from Anneka ... she is a great teacher ... and her recipe is really good!" – Helen Wong, Hong Kong
