you can tell it's Easter time in Jamaica!
In the states you may see chocolate bunnies and eggs fill the store shelves to indicate that Easter season is near. In Jamaica you see something much more filling and I would have to guess, healthier! But when you put the cheese on it, cheddar or cream, you probably have to eliminate some health benefits!
Easter Bun is wonderful! We have spice bun on the shelves all year, but the difference in the Easter bun is more fruit. Raisins and cherries.
Here are the ingredients. flour, sugar, stout, butter, cinnamon, mixed spice, nutmeg and vanilla, baking powder, egg, marmalade, honey, molasses, raisins and cherries. Yum!
Typing out the ingredients makes me wonder....maybe there isn't much difference between an Easter bun and a chocolate bunny...just a different kind of sweet!
I can't find Easter candy here so a bun will have to do!
