French toast Hot Cross Buns

Hot cross recipe In the unlikely event that you have left over Hot Cross Buns, the team have been working on some ideas for how to make some delicious treats.

The favourite so far is French toast – it is so delicious & easy we thought we would share it with you.  We tried it with fruit, but I think it would be delicious and gooey with the chocolate ones too!

80ml single cream
2 eggs, lightly whisked
2 teaspoons caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
40g butter
4 x day old hot cross buns, cut in half
Maple syrup & fresh fruit, to serve

Place the cream, egg, sugar and cinnamon in a medium bowl and whisk with a fork until combined.

Melt half the butter in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat until foaming. Dip half the bun slices, 1 at a time, in the egg mixture and place in the hot pan. Cook for 1 minute each side or until golden brown.
Transfer to a plate and repeat with the remaining butter, bun slices and egg mixture.

Serve immediately topped with fresh fruits (such as figs or blueberries) and drizzle with maple syrup.
