Hot Cross Bun and Butter Pudding

One for the Easter left overs when your Hot Cross Buns are going a little beyond their best but it works just as well with fruit loaf at any other time of year. This is basically a lazy person’s bread and butter pudding because the buns do most of the hard word for you. However, we’ve still added a touch more spice, just in case they’re not pulling their weight so for one of the tastiest yet simplest of puds, try our Hot Cross Bun and Butter Pudding
