What to do with stale leftover hot cross buns?

So I made a bread and butter pudding out of the hot cross buns - yum! Its not a pretty dish so I won't take a photo!


  • cut up and butter your hotcross buns
  • layer them into a casserole dish
  • sprinkle a tiny bit of sugar over, and repeat layers.
  • when you have reached 1cm (half and inch) below the top of dish stop.
  • sprinkle any remaining crumbs over the casserole dish
  • In a separate bowl, mix 3 eggs, 300 ml milk and 300 ml thickened cream and a bit of nutmeg or cinnamon if you like.
  • Whisk, then pour over the layered buns, ensuring you've covered everything.
  • Put on the casserole lid, and leave to settle for about 20 mins (or whilst you have dinner)
  • Heat your oven to about 180-200 degrees (medium oven)
  • Put in the pudding, lid on for about 20 minutes. Then take the lid off, and brown the top of the pudding for another 20 minutes or so. Basically until the egg and liquid looks set.
  • Leave to cool. Serve hot with some thickened cream over the top - yum!
