This applies to Easter, too. And when we met the hot cross bun bread and butter pudding, we didn't look back.

Truly giving a spin on a classic dessert during the time of daffodils, lambs, and pancake bloat, London-based catering company Capital Cooking just upgraded the hot cross bun to new heights. Try it for yourself and see!
