Ingredients
 

  • 2 medium free-range eggs
  • 200 semi-skimmed milk
  • 55 g caster sugar
  • 0.5 tsp mixed spice
  • 2 hot cross buns, halved
  • 55 g unsalted butter

Instructions
 

  • To make the custard, mix the eggs, milk, sugar and mixed spice thoroughly.
  • Pop the hot cross buns into a shallow tray, ensuring they sit nicely and tightly together cut side down.
  • Pour over the egg mixture and leave to soak for 5-6 minutes, pressing down lightly with a fork.
  • Carefully turn occasionally. As they soak up the mixture, the buns will become heavy and soggy, do not over-soak.
  • To cook, warm up a large nonstick frying pan, then add the butter.
  • Once foaming, pop the halved buns cut side down into the pan.
  • Cook so the bottoms are slightly brown and set.
  • Then turn over and continue to cook until they are just cooked through and just set, so you end up with a soft centre.
  • Remove and keep warm.
  • To serve, place onto four warm plates and top with a large ball of caramel ice cream on top of each half.
