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
Make the custard:
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
