Easter Eggs and Hot Cross Buns in BKK ?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I was talking to my GF yesterday about Easter, skipped over most of the religious stuff and told her it is a big holiday back home, a bit like Songkran is here. She was interested (typical Thais and food, LOL.) when I mentioned the traditional food of Hot Cross Buns and Easter Eggs....the chocolate ones not the dyed boiled eggs.  Which got me to wondering if they might be available here in Bangkok, perhaps at somewhere like the Emporium food hall ? Probably would cost an arm and a leg, but has anybody ever seen them for sale in BKK ?

Kinder Surprize Eggs

Unwrap them and put fancy wraps around them.

Keep in airconditioned room.

On Easter, hide them and let your GF find them.

 

 

Hot Cross Buns

Yes they exist, and it is vanilla cream.

If you can't find them, you can ask the bakkery at big c,

they sell these buns with a line, to make it as you like.

cross on each buns instead of just a line.

 

Extra: Chocolate eggs

If you have sticky fingers and time try make them

makro has all the ingredients

web has all the how-dos

No, but I suddenly get the desire for a mildly spiced HCB, toasted with loads of butter 😛

 

 

Is this what you mean with HCB?

The Dutch version Paasbrood ('Easter Bread')

There are various versions, with and without boiled egg.

The most eaten Paasbrood is bread with raisins and almond paste filling.

Thanks for that .....it’s been 8 or 9 years since my last hot cross bun, might have a bit of a calorie splurge this weekend.😁

Yep, I was going to recommend the Central Chidlom Bakery for their periodic hot cross buns as well...  Not great by home standards, but at least they make and bake their own fresh.

 

As for chocolate easter eggs, I believe I saw something recently about the cafe/bakery at the Landmark Hotel on Suk Road near Soi 6 offering their own chocolate Easter eggs for sale.

 

In my case, I ordered a shipment of See's Candy's chocolate easter eggs from home, including my all time favorite, rocky road Easter egg, which I used to eat as a kid. Sadly, no See's outlets to be found in TH.

For my tastes, the HCBs at Central Chidlom are seriously lacking in the spice department and not many currants either (mostly just plain sweet bread), but they do at least put an icing cross on the top.

Not trying to hijack the thread, what about in Patts, I would love my Mrs to get all messy with a big chocolate egg in this heat 🙂 + HCB are the Mutts Nuts 🙂

😆 Got my Easter Eggs already. I will pick up the HCB tomorrow from Park & Shop or (Park & Rob) has it is commonly known in Dubai before heading to the airport for my flight to BKK and Easter Hols. They are the best that I can find anyway. Made with Hovis flour. 😀

Here's a bit more about the Landmark Hotel's Easter egg promotion that I mentioned briefly above:
