Hot Cross Bun Flavours 2018

Hot Cross Bun Flavours and Ideas for 2018

There is no doubt that the traditional Hot Cross Buns will remain a popular fare for Easter but the appeal of non-traditional hot cross buns flavoured with unique flavour combinations are increasing in popularity.

ITS have developed a range of exciting sweet and spice combinations to compliment buns, breads, cakes and cookies. By using extensive market research and testing out new flavour combinations in our test bakery, the technical development team have successfully developed some terrific Easter flavour ideas for use in a variety of applications.

Our expert panel testing on popular supermarket brands have shown some interesting findings on spice flavour balance, fruit content, aroma, appearance and texture for traditional premium hot cross buns. If you would like more information about our findings, please contact us.

We work closely with customers to help develop a close match to their requirements for liquid or powder form of flavours for their buns. Please also get in touch if you would like to use our Innovation Centre or Test Bakery facilities for your development projects or if you would like us to visit you.

Here are some of our Hot Cross Bun flavour ideas for 2018:
• Traditional Core Bun Spice combinations
• Apple and Cinnamon Danish
• Pear and Caramel
• Strawberries and Cream
• Ploughman's Hot Cross Bun (savoury)

Flavoured Dried Fruits

Raisins and sultanas provide a fantastic natural sweetness and texture in baked products. With Easter products, the addition of flavoured raisins and sultanas adds a depth of flavour and give a better flavour distribution.

Our flavour ranges include a popular assortment of berry flavours and zingy citrus flavours. Try them in traditional hot cross buns or even in new twists such as using lime flavoured sultanas for a zingy Lime and Milk Chocolate Hot Cross Buns.
