1 hot cross bun - a couple of days old, not too fresh
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 )
