mcith_Four62300.jpgCowcross Yards is working from home and bringing the YUM: Hot Cross @ Cowcross Yards event to you, asking Londoners To Step Up To The Hot Cross Bun Challenge And’show Us Ya Buns!’

Get creative with the kids for Easter or try a new skill – simply share your unusual hot cross bun recipes on Instagram or Facebook or give making one a go, sharing your pictures of the finished product

Cowcross Yards and Urban Food Fest have made the decision to temporarily close the weekly street food market, and all pop-up street food events including YUM: Hot Cross @ Cowcross Yards (which was due to take place on 2 April) will be postponed.

However, fear not hot cross bun lovers, Cowcross Yards will be bringing the YUM: Hot Cross @ Cowcross Yards home to you.

This Easter, in homage to Britain’s best-loved bun, Cowcross Yards is setting Londoners the challenge to’Show Us Ya Buns’.

Get creative with the kids or try a new skill by baking your own twist on the hot cross bun, and for those who are unable to bake, you can still create and share a delicious recipe.

How Does It Work?

Take the Cowcross Yards special recipe – see Cowcross Yards Instagram, Facebook or website

Add your twist – either create an unusual recipe or go the extra mile and actually bake a bun using the ingredients that you already have in your cupboards – sugared almonds, popping candy, hot fudge, peanut butter, candy floss, whatever you like.

Share your images/recipes on Instagram or Facebook tagging @cowcrossyards with the hashtag #CowcrossShowUsYaBuns

Points go to those buns that are mouth-watering yet extraordinary flavours, or fun presentations! Go on and show us ya buns!

Each week Cowcross Yards will pick their favourite bun(s) and re-share them on Instagram and Facebook. The challenge is live now and closes on Easter Sunday
