Have you had your first hot cross bun of the season yet?  Do you know where the best hot cross buns in New Zealand are baked?

Easter is not far away but even closer, in fact tomorrow, entries close in the Great New Zealand Hot Cross Bun Competition which is open to all bakeries in New Zealand.

Entries are about to close on February 21 at 5pm for the 2021 Great New Zealand Hot Cross Bun Competition, so get your favourite bakery to enter; it would be a shame for them to miss out.

The Great New Zealand Hot Cross Bun Competition is run by the Baking Industry Association of New Zealand – BIANZ - and this year it will be judged in Dunedin on February 27.

On March 3 the winner will be announced in national media with BIANZ president Kevin Gilbert personally presenting the trophy to the bakery.

People are already searching for the taste of a great hot cross bun and we know theres a winning bakery out there but if they dont enter we cant give them the glory they deserve,” says Kevin.

“They just need to go to to enter and its free. If they happen to win, the rewards will be enormous!

Brian says the winning bakery’s success will attract huge media attention and everyone will want a taste of their winning hot cross bun.

Previous winners have done so well out of the competition that they have been selling hot cross buns continually up until they switched to their Christmas product range.

Tell your bakery to enter now before its too late.
