Hot Cross Bun French Toast


This is a good way of using up any leftover hot cross buns. This recipe serves one person but you can double up.


1 hot cross bun - a couple of days old, not too fresh
1 egg
2 tablespoons of milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 large knob of butter
A drop of oil

Beat together the egg, vanilla & milk really well.

Slice the hot cross bun in 2 and put into the egg mixture to soak for 3 or 4 minutes on each side.

Heat the butter with a drop of sunflower oil until the butter is foaming ( the oil helps prevent the butter from burning ). Add the bun & fry until golden brown on both sides. Best served with maple syrup ( and for me a bit of crispy bacon )

  1. Lovely post,always strikes me how alert the teenage tastebuds can be in the mornings!Mine all made pizza dough the other day,all on twitter,chose their own toppings and result=polished plates.This is def one to try for mornings though,although my daughter leaves so little time between being ready and bus that I think it will be me prepping hers!
