Photos of all things food and drink from The Daily Meal

Hot cross buns are moist and sweet with a hint of spice.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of hot cross buns. Hot cross buns are spiced rolls made with currants and topped with icing. The history of hot cross buns is somewhat muddled, though they are tied to various religions. Through the years, they have become an English tradition that's served on Good Friday. They're also linked to various other superstitions and myths. Read more about the mystery behind hot cross buns here.
