Our Hot Cross Bun and Butter Pudding is a twist on the traditional and it is great made in the Air Fryer! This tasty treat is guaranteed to satisfy a sweet tooth. We used the Dualit Hand Mixer with whisk attachment to make the custard.

Ingredients

  • 6 Hot Cross Buns
  • 2 large eggs
  • 200ml full fat milk
  • 25g caster sugar
  • 25g butter (add a little extra for greasing the dish)
  • 100ml double cream
  • 1 tsp grated nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp caster or icing sugar for dusting
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

Method

  1. Preheat the Air Fryer for 5 minutes
  2. Slice the buns in half, lightly butter and sandwich back together.
  3. Slice each bun into 3 pieces, keeping them uniform (formed back with crosses on top).
  4. Place 6 buns into 9 inch sandwich tin lined with greaseproof paper one inch higher than the tin.
  5. Using the Dualit Hand Mixer, make the custard by mixing together the eggs, sugar and vanilla essence. Whisk until pale. Then add the milk and cream, continuing to whisk for a minute to combine.
  6. Pour half the custard over and between the buns, allowing the liquid to settle for a minute or two before adding the rest over the top. This allows the custard to soak into the buns.
  7. Combine the nutmeg and sugar and sprinkle over the top.
  8. Place the tin in the Air Fryer for 20-30 minutes.
  9. The pudding will rise and puff out whilst baking, check halfway to ensure the top is not burning. If you find it's a little too brown at this stage, loosely place a piece of foil over the top until the last 10 minutes, then remove and continue baking.
  10. Place a skewer into the pudding to check the custard has set; the inside should be soft and will wobble, if it is runny or loose it needs to cook for slightly longer.
  11. The pudding will deflate when you remove it from the Air Fryer. Allow to cool a little before serving as the middle can be very hot.
  12. Dust with a little caster or icing sugar before serving.
