Jamaican Easter Bun
by Rosa-Lee Phang

Tis the season of Easter bunny, Easter egg, Easter egg hunt, hot cross buns and the good old Jamaica Easter bun!

While Easter is just a day, we take pride in commemorating the temptation, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ during the period of March to April- lasting for approximately forty day each year.

Some of us are stricken to go to church and take part in tradditional practices based of the western traditions; while others from the eastern side Christian and non-Christian will have some difference in their celebration. 

Yes we enjoy spiced bun all year in Jamaica but nothing to us like the specially 'marinated' Jamaican Easter Bun with all of the fruits and wine mix up and baked to perfection.

National, HTB, Yummy and Maxfield are four of the leading bakeries, each providing their own unique version of the Easter Bun.

And we still have those grandparents who will go through the extent of baking their own! 

And can I tell you about the adverts?
They are something to behold in Jamaica - of course creating a sense of urgency to get your easter bun :-)

Two popular ones are ‘Oliver and Boise’ and Skatta (we know him better as Titus). 

The real fulfillment comes from baking your very own though, and you are in luck today!

Here now is a very easy recipe for making your own Jamaica Easter Bun courtesy of GraceFoods.com
