Most people who know me know I like a good bread and butter pudding. I've made it using all sorts of bread, a favourite being Panettone. I've also used different "dried fruit" to go between the bread - preserved ginger and marmalade worked very well. At Great British Chefs I've made Delia Smith's amazing Chocolate Bread and Butter pudding a number of times - it's surprisingly easy yet tastes incredible. However, I've never made bread & butter pudding with Hot Cross Buns before.
It's a great way to use up leftover or slightly stale Hot Cross Buns to have as a dessert on Easter Sunday or any time over the Easter holiday.
Using a number of recipes as a reference here's the basic guide.
