Hot cross buns are thought to have orginated in St Albans in the 14th century. The local townsfolk had rather fallen out with the abbey, so to ease things over the abbot ordered some special buns should be made to be given out to the poor folk of St Albans on Good Friday.
The idea spread throughout the country. But the St Albans buns, which are still made, have a special secret recipe. See all about it St Albans here!
