Chocolate hot cross bun toast for 4
Use 4 chocolate hot cross buns instead,
swap the cinnamon for 1 tsp of vanilla
extract and sandwich the buns together
with 1 tbsp of Nutella per bun. Dust with
icing sugar and cocoa powder, and
serve with vanilla ice cream.
Mix 3 tbsp of the butter with half
the cinnamon and mash together. Beat
together the egg, milk and remaining
cinnamon. Sandwich 2 slices of hot
cross bun together with half the
cinnamon butter and repeat with
the remaining two slices.
Dip in the egg mix and leave to soak
for a few secs. Heat the butter in a frying
pan until foaming. Cook the hot cross
buns for 1-2 mins each side until light
golden (you may need to do this in two
batches). Press down on them as you
cook. Serve each portion topped with
a scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of
maple syrup, if you like.
