Chocolate Hot Cross Fry-Pan Pudding

This is an awesome and super decadent way to use up any leftover hot cross buns but would also work using brioche or fruit bread at any other time of year. The fudge sauce can be re-heated so keep any leftovers in the fridge. Enjoy! xx



6 stale Hot Cross Buns ***
4 extra-large Eggs
¼ cup of Thickened Cream
¼ cup of Brown Sugar
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
Butter for frying
Vanilla Ice cream and Chocolate Fudge Sauce to serve

Chocolate Fudge Sauce
1 tbs butter
100mls Thickened Cream
¼ cup Honey
¼ cup Brown Sugar
2 tbs Dutch Cocoa
100gms 70% best quality Dark Chocolate
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Pinch Salt

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, vanilla and brown sugar. Slice the hot cross buns into halves and set aside.
  2. Make the fudge sauce by combining all the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and cooking over a low heat until melted and smooth.
  3. Heat a large sauté or frypan over a medium/high heat. Add a large knob of butter and heat until sizzling. Dunk the cut buns into the egg mixture really well and place into the frypan. Cook for 1-2 minutes each side until browned and crisp.
  4. Once cooked serve the hot puddings with vanilla ice cream and hot fudge sauce.
  5. ***TIP: I like to use Chocolate Hot Cross Buns, but any hot cross bun will do. This recipe works with fruit and fruitless buns also. This ridiculously delicious Fudge sauce goes with everything!
