    • 4 hot cross buns
    • 15g unsalted butter

    • 100ml whole milk
    • 2 eggs & 1 egg yolk
    • 100g Rachel’s Greek Style Natural Bio Live Yogurt

    1. Pre-heat the oven to 160°C/Gas 3 and grease a 1 litre ovenproof dish.
    2. Cut the hot cross buns in half and spread with butter both sides. Arrange the buns in an ovenproof dish layering the cross sides face up on top.
    3. In a small pan add the cream and milk and heat until just warm.
    4. In a small bowl add the eggs and egg yolk, pour over the heated cream and milk and whisk thoroughly. Add the yogurt, whisk again.
    5. Pour the mixture over the buns a little at a time, ensuring it has time to soak in.
