8 hot cross buns

25-55g (1-2 oz) butter

8 glacé cherries, optional

250ml (½ pint) double cream

250ml (½ pint) milk

55g (2 oz) caster sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

3 eggs

Sifted icing sugar

I find the nicest hot cross buns to use are those which are lightly spiced, because they give a good flavour to the cooked pudding.

Cut the hot cross buns in half, horizontally and spread thickly with butter, then slice each vertically into three pieces. Arrange the slices overlapping in a buttered AGA Chef’s Dish. Sprinkle over the glace cherries, if using. Place the cream and milk into a saucepan with the sugar and heat until tepid, stir to dissolve the sugar, then cool. Whisk the vanilla extract and eggs together then whisk in the cooled cream, milk and sugar, pour over the hot cross buns. Allow to soak for at least 30 minutes.
