Happy Easter with a Jamaican Bun and Cheese

#Didyouknow that the Jamaican Easter bun, is a tropical version of the English hot cross bun. When the British captured Jamaica, they brought the custom of eating Hot cross buns at Easter to the island. Over time, Jamaicans made the original English cross bun their own by using molasses in the mix instead of honey. They also changed the shape of the bun into a loaf and added more fruit to the mixture. In Jamaica the bun is eaten with cheese. In the present day, the custom of eating hot cross buns on Good Friday has waned in Britain, but it is still prevalent in Jamaica, with Bun and Cheese a dish eaten chiefly during the Easter holiday.
