Hot Cross Buns x French Toast

Happy Easter all! Long four-day weekends call for lie-ins and brunch ๐Ÿ˜€ Here’s a delightfully quick recipe you can whip up with ingredients you’ll probably already have lying around, and it transforms your average hot cross bun into something incredible.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 4 hot cross buns
  • 2 eggs
  • 50 ml milk
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 80 g frozen berries (I used raspberries, blackberries, redcurrants and blackcurrants)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Icing sugar
  • Maple syrup

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200ยฐC / 180ยฐC fan / 390ยฐF.
  2. Lightly whisk together the eggs, milk and a pinch of cinnamon.
  3. Cut a pocket into the side of each hot cross bun, and stuff with a handful of frozen berries. Don’t go overboard otherwise the berries will leak out!
  4. Dip the buns into the eggy mixture and allow to soak.
  5. Melt butter in a frying pan on a medium heat.
  6. Fry the buns for 1 minute on each side, or until each side is golden brown.
  7. Pop the buns into the oven for 8-10 minutes until it is heated throughout.
  8. Serve with generous lashings of maple syrup, more berries and other toppings of your choice.
