Hot cross pudding.............

What to do with any leftover hot cross buns, even if they're slightly stale.

1 bun per person
1 egg per person
1 tbsp sugar

Slice the buns in half, or in three if thick, and spread with butter; cut each slice in half. Arrange on end in a baking dish. Beat the eggs with an equal volume of milk and add sugar; pour over bun slices and into a hottish oven until the custard is set and the bun tops crispy. Serve warm with custard or cream.

Have tried this before, absolutely delicious. To make even more special add a glug of brandy to the milk/egg/sugar mix.

Nice idea - or a bit of sherry :)
