Hot Cross Bun and Butter Pudding

Hot Cross Buns are everywhere in the shops just now, even though it is nearly a month until Easter.  This is an easy warming dessert made with these spiced and fruited bread buns and if you have children or teenagers to feed, it fills them up!  It also features one of the Total 0% Yogurt Split Pots, this time it's the one with the honey.

Hot Cross Bun & Butter Pudding
This pudding serves 3-4 people

1 Hot Cross Bun
10g butter
2 eggs
100ml milk
1 tbsp soft brown sugar
1 Total 0% Greek Yogurt Split Pot (Honey)

Grease a small deep heatproof dish with a little of the butter.  Split the bun and spread each half with the remaining butter.  Slice the bun into small squares and place in the dish. Drizzle over the honey.

Beat the eggs, sugar, milk and yogurt together and pour over the pieces of bun.

Leave for an hour to soak, then pre-heat the oven to 170C and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes until risen and golden.
I served this with icecream, but you could eat it as it is, with custard, cream or more yogurt.
