  • 6 free from hot cross buns cut into 3 layers and buttered
  • 2 tbsp Birds Custard Powder

  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 pint soya milk or any suitable DF alternative

  • apricot jam to brush bun tops
  1. Cut the Hot Cross Buns into three slices and butter each slice

  2. Prepare the custard by mixing a little of the milk with the dry ingredients to a paste then add the remaining milk and whisk

  3. Grease your oven proof dish and start to add a layer the sliced buns, sprinkle a handful of mixed fruit and repeat process until all layers are added - tops of buns last!
