Bun & Butter Pudding

Hot Cross Bun And ButterPudding (12)

Everyone has some secret behaviour that they don’t like to share with the world at large, lest it expose them as lazy or gluttonous or lord knows what else.  I will confess:  there are few things I like more on a Sunday than putting on my pyjamas at 7pm and settling down to a couple of dvds with obscene amounts of cake or pudding.  Truth be told, if I could do that every night of my life I would probably be very happy indeed.  And that is exactly how I devoured this seasonal take on bread and butter pudding, accompanied by a large glass of wine and entertainment from Studio Ghibli.  Perfect.
