So I thought I’d use up some hot cross buns and made this up- it was really rather delicious….

Prepare the dish:
6 ish hot cross buns sliced in half and buttered
Few dollops of marmalade
Handful of raisins soaked in Cointreau

Butter the dish and layer the hot cross buns, raisins and marmalade

Make the custard:
500ml milk
500ml double cream
3 tablespoons caster sugar
1 large egg
4 large egg yolks

Put the milk and cream in a pan and bring near to boiling point
Whisk the egg, the yolks and sugar in a bowl, when the milk and cream are near boiling pour over the whisked egg whisking continually

Pour over the hot cross buns and leave to soak in for a few minutes.

Cook in the oven for about 45 minutes at 160
