Hot Cross Buns Pudding

Are you having a good Easter weekend? Dave and I were in Rome for Good Friday and we are now in Sardinia. If we were at home we might have some leftover hot cross buns and I would be making this hot cross buns pudding for dessert.

You might have read about my online shopping experience that was not going too well in the post for Chocolate Hot Cross Buns. Once I had sorted out the issue of my address, I tried to pay using my store card. When that would not go through I attempted payment via credit card. For some reason the payment process was not finalized and my order was cancelled. This meant starting the entire process all over again. And then the site would not accept my voucher as it had already been used. I sent an email to the company explaining my situation, and displeasure and two days later someone called me back. The voucher was re-issued and I placed the order again. Once more, the credit card payment would not go through. I eventually found a link on my order confirmation to process the payment and finally everything was in place.

Two days later I received the goods I had ordered. As I did not actually need the one item I took it to the retail store in the Mall to return it. After waiting some time at the customer services counter I was told I had to go to another department to do the return. I had to wait there as well for someone to come and attend to me. The sales lady was not sure how to do the return for an online purchase and so she called the manager. Who in turn did not know how to do the return. She disappeared to make some telephone calls and I browsed around to keep myself occupied. Eventually I was credited for my purchase and could go on my way. Just in time as well as I had this Hot Cross Buns Pudding recipe to prepare.

    We all absolutely loved this pudding. The flavours were amazing. I used milk chocolate pieces instead of dark. I really think the baking time needs seriously adjusting – it was no where near ready at 45 mins. It took at least twice as long, if not longer. So give yourself extra time. Will definitely be making again next Easter.
