Custard pudding – dunked in the warm buttery custard, the leftover hotcross buns certainly have an afterlife ad the yummiest. I love to use the turmeric cardamom custard as the base or some orange custard to form the pudding.
Parfait- make layered with fruits or just berries the pieces of hot cross buns taste amazing in the sexy pudding. Use the chocolate chip ones for the best feeling in this recipe.

Hot cross buns with icecream – the ice cream sandwich is absolutely delightful. So why skip it! Slice the ice cream and the bun and layer them together or scoop out the centre of the hot cross buns and add in your ice cream. I love this version. I love to use the fruit-laden version for this recipe.
Chocolate clusters – if you are an everything taste better with chocolate kind of girl, chop up the bun into small bits and toast them briefly with a touch of butter. Then melt some good dark chocolate (a bit in excess) roll in the toasted hot cross bun pieces in it and drop them on parchment paper to cool as clusters. Add in a bit of sprinkles or gold stars if you like.

Crumbs– the classic hot cross buns are best to give a whizz in the food processor to make bread crumbs. Store these breadcrumbs in a freezer friendly pouch. You can use these crumbs a mix with your pancake batter or add to a bean burger for surprise slight sweetness.
