This genius concept of using up leftover (or not!) hot cross buns in a bread and butter pudding makes a divine indulgence over the Easter holidays. Use hot cross buns of your choice – and enjoy the addition of our fragrant sweet spices in the custard, and sprinkle of spice dust on top.


  1. Pre-heat oven to 160C.
  2. Combine milk and cream in a saucepan and warm through, but do not simmer.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk sugar and eggs.
  4. Add milk mixture to eggs with fragrant sweet spices and whisk to combine.
  5. Arrange hot cross buns in a baking dish and pour over custard. Option to rest for 15-20 minutes for soaking.
  6. Bake for 40-45 minutes until custard is set.
  7. Sieve spice dust over warm pudding and serve immediately.
