Hot cross buns with a chocolate twist: dark chocolate and hot cross bun pudding

Ingredients

  • 80 ml cream

  • 6 hot cross buns
  • 100 g dark chocolate
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 125 ml caster sugar

Method

  1. Slice the hot cross buns in half and fill with chopped chocolate. Sandwich together with the chocolate filling and place in a greased baking dish.
  2. Combine the milk, cream, vanilla and cinnamon in a small saucepan, and stir on a low heat until warm throughout.
  3. Beat the eggs and sugar together in a separate bowl, until the sugar has dissolved.
  4. Add the milk and cream mixture to the sugar and egg mixture, and stir until well combined.
  5. Pour the mixture over the hot cross buns in the dish and let them soak for about 20 minutes.
