It's Easter time! People around the world look forward to this season each year as it brings cheer and joyous celebration. While we treasure our families, make sacrifices for Lent and under normal circumstances visit church, one thing Jamaicans can't give up is Easter bun & cheese!

So you know we couldn't let the Easter season pass us by without sharing our very own “Love Mi Grace Browning” Easter bun recipe, courtesy of Grace Kitchens Executive Chef Shea Stewart. We also had our very own Easter bun expert Ajani Campbell on hand to see if the proof is really in the pudding, the Grace Browning, that is.

Staying inside? No worries, you can use these very simple ingredients to create your own delicious Easter bun experience with Grace right in your own kitchen. And of course, you can't have Easter bun without copious slices of Tastee cheese.

Made with your favourite Grace Browning, fruits and spices, this recipe is quick, easy and scrumptious. Make a bun sandwich and layer with Tastee cheese or simply enjoy it on its own. Try spreading your freshly baked Easter bun with a tups of Anchor butter before adding your slice of Tastee cheese.

Chef Shea also recommends checking out some additional Easter bun recipes from Grace in the Jamaica Observer's Easter Cookbook, where we feature our whole wheat Easter bun recipe.

As for our official Easter bun taste-tester, well, he gives it two thumbs up!

Happy Easter from Grace!
