The Hot Cross Bun Pudding has been made with the left over Hot Cross Buns (Click here). But you can also make it with plain bread by adding a few raisins. It is very easy to make and tastes delicious. I have used brown sugar in the recipe but you can also use regular sugar if you don’t have it. (For more Pudding Recipes, click here)
