Typical energy values per 100g: 1097kJ/262kcal.
  • 10g butter
  • 3 leftover hot cross buns (if doesn't matter if they are slightly stale)
  • 298g can mandarin segments in juice
  • 150g chocolate from Easter eggs
  • 250ml full-fat milk
  • 1 level tbsp caster sugar
  • Few drops vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Grease the inside of an ovenproof dish with butter. Cut each hot cross bun into 4 slices.

  • Drain the mandarins (you can drink the juice). Put on a plate lined with double-thickness kitchen paper to absorb excess juice.

  • Arrange the bun slices in the dish, overlapping them and scattering the mandarins between them.

  • Break the chocolate into small pieces and put in a small pan with the milk and sugar. Stir over a low heat until warm but not hot, mixing in the chocolate. Leave to cool for 10 minutes.

  • Put the eggs and vanilla in a bowl, add the chocolate milk and whisk with a wire whisk until evenly blended.

  • Pour over the buns, pushing them down gently into the milk mixture. Leave them to soak up the liquid for 10 minutes.

  • Bake for 25-35 minutes.
