Chocolate Hot Cross Bread and Butter Pudding

Standard

What’s not to like about chocolate, custard and bread? I’ll tell you. Nothing.

I know it is only January but yes, hot cross buns line the bakery isles already and these chocolate and salted caramel versions from Tesco are no exception. Ever a sucker for the end of isle specials, I found that a few packs had made their way into my shopping bags. And what better way to enjoy them than baked up in a wonderfully gooey, fluffy and light chocolate studded custard? Again, nothing.

Ridiculously easy and ridiculously tasty. Give it a go.

Serves 6

Ingredients:

  • 6 chocolate and salted caramel hot cross buns
  • 25g butter
  • 75g dark chocolate chips
  • 2 large eggs
  • 250ml milk
  • 1tbsp caster sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Method:

  1. Heat the oven to 170°C, 150°C Fan.
  2. Cut the hot cross buns in half and butter the cut sides, sprinkle with half of the chocolate chips, sandwich together again and place in a baking dish.
  3. Beat the egg milk, sugar, salt and vanilla together and pour over the buns. Scatter with the remaining chocolate chips and bake for 30 minutes or until just set.
  4. Serve with custard or ice cream.
