Hot Cross Bun Latte

With Easter approaching super fast, here’s our elevated take on the McDonald’s viral Hot Cross Bun latte, using our iconic HOUSE espresso blend. Plus, we’ve also whipped up a caffeine-free hot cross bun latte recipe for the little ones, so that you can enjoy this awesome Easter coffee together as a family over the long weekend.

Syrup: Step 1

Put all the ingredients in a small saucepan over a medium heat

Syrup: Step 2

Whisk constantly until sugar dissolves and the mixture is bubbling

Syrup: Step 3

Reduce the heat to low and stir for further 1 to 2 minutes

Syrup: Step 4

Set the syrup aside to cool off

Syrup: Step 5

Once cold, strain the syrup using a fine mesh strainer and pour it in a jar. Make sure you remove the cinnamon stick to avoid the syrup from getting stronger.

Tip 1: the hot cross bun syrup can be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge for several days

Latte: Step 1

Put 15-20 ml of hot cross bun syrup into a mug

Latte: Step 2

Prepare the double shot of your HOUSE Espresso by following our espresso brewing guide.
Our personal favourite recipe:
18g ground coffee in; 36 - 40g brewed espresso out
26 - 30 second extraction

Latte: Step 3

Add the double shot of espresso to the syrup and mix it all together

Latte: Step 4

Prepare your milk using a milk frother. If you don’t have a milk frother at home then use a whisk and whisk the hot milk until it has almost doubled in size

Latte: Step 5

Fill the mug with frothed milk until full

Latte: Step 6

Serve immediately and enjoy. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon for the added touch
