Hot cross bun and butter pudding

We've all heard of bread and butter pudding, but make one with hot cross buns at Easter and the results are both seasonal and spectacular

Ingredients
500 ml semi skimmed milk by Sainsbury’s
100 ml double cream by Sainsbury’s
0.5 tsp Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Madagascan vanilla extract
2 medium free-range eggs by Sainsbury’s
75 g Fairtrade golden caster sugar by Sainsbury’s
Zest of 1 orange
6 Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference fruity hot cross buns, sliced in half
25 g butterlicious by Sainsbury’s
1 tsp icing sugar

Method
Pour the milk, cream and vanilla extract into a saucepan, slowly bring almost to the boil and remove from the heat. In a large heatproof mixing bowl, beat the eggs and sugar until thickened and pale in colour. Gradually add the milk mixture, whisking as you go, then add the orange zest and whisk to combine. 

Butter the cut sides of the buns with the butterlicious spread. In a baking dish measuring 21cm square and 4cm deep, arrange the bun halves cut sides down. Pour the milk mixture through a sieve over the buns and allow to stand for 30 minutes. 

Preheat the oven to 160°C / fan 140°C / gas 3 and put the kettle on. Place the baking dish in a roasting tin, pour hot water from the kettle into the tin until it comes halfway up the side of the baking dish and bake for 45 minutes until just set. Dust with the icing sugar and serve.

Hot cross buns

Comforting and aromatic, don't just make these simple hot cross buns at Easter – they're great all year round

Ingredients
175 g mixed dried fruit
Zest of 1 orange
1 x 7g sachet fast-action dried yeast
175 g caster sugar
300 ml semi-skimmed milk, warm
600 g strong white bread flour
3 tsp mixed spice
0.5 tsp Fairtrade ground cinnamon
A good grating of nutmeg
75 g unsalted butter, softened, plus 1 tablespoon melted butter
1 medium free-range egg, yolk only, mixed with 1 tablespoon milk
50 g plain flour

Method
Mix together the dried fruit and orange zest in a bowl. Set aside. Put the yeast in a jug with 15g of the caster sugar. Pour over 4 tablespoons of the warm milk and leave to foam for 5 minutes.

In a food processor, pulse the flour, 110g of the caster sugar, a pinch of salt, the mixed spice, cinnamon, nutmeg and softened butter, until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Tip into a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Pour in the yeast mixture and most of the remaining milk. Mix to a sticky dough, adding more milk if needed.

Tip onto a floured surface and knead for 8-10 minutes, until smooth and elastic. Add the dried fruits and zest mixture and knead until combined. Put in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with oiled clingfilm and leave in a warm place to rise for 1 hour until doubled in size.

Press the dough into a rectangular shape. Divide and shape into 16 balls of equal size. Place, almost touching, on baking trays lined with baking parchment. Cover with a damp tea towel and leave in a warm place until doubled in size and joined together – this may take up to an hour, depending on the temperature.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 230°C, fan 210°C, gas 8. Gently brush the buns with the egg yolk and milk mixture.

Mix together the plain flour and melted butter with 4 tablespoons of water to form a paste. Spoon into a piping bag with a plain nozzle and pipe a cross on the top of each bun. Bake in the oven for 5 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 190°C, fan 170°C, gas 5, and bake for a further 10-15 minutes until risen and golden. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.

In a small pan, gently heat the remaining 50g sugar with 2 tablespoons water to dissolve. Bring to the boil then brush over the cooled buns. Allow to cool completely before serving.

Cook’s tip:
make a more indulgent bun with luxury mixed dried fruit.

Simnel cake

A fruity simnel cake is an Easter classic – it will also make a delicious fruity alternative to all that chocolate

Ingredients
155 g unsalted butter, softened
350 g luxury mixed dried fruit
150 g soft light brown sugar
3 large free-range eggs, beaten
200 g self-raising flour
2 tsp ground mixed spice
20 g stem ginger, finely chopped
454 g golden marzipan
2 tbsp apricot jam

Method
Preheat the oven to 170°C, fan 150°C, gas 3. Grease and line the base and sides of 20 cm deep sided round cake tin with 5g of the butter and baking parchment.

Place the dried fruit in a mixing bowl, pour over boiling water to cover and leave to soak for 10 minutes. Strain the dried fruit through a sieve, pat dry on kitchen paper and leave to cool slightly.

In the bowl of a free-standing mixer, cream the remaining butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. While the mixer is still on gradually add the eggs, one at a time, adding a tablespoon of flour with each addition until well mixed. Turn off the machine and using a large metal spoon fold the remaining flour and mixed spice into the cake batter. Add the soaked fruits and finely chopped ginger and mix to thoroughly combine.

Roll a third of the marzipan into a circle the same size as the tin.

Spoon half the cake mixture into the prepared loaf tin, spread level and lay the marzipan disc on top. Cover with the rest of the cake mixture and spread level with the back of the spoon. Cook in the oven for 1 hour, then turn the oven temperature down to 150°C, fan 130°C, gas 2 and bake for a further 50 minutes to 1 hour, until the cake is golden and a skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean. Cover the cake loosely with foil if it appears to be browning too quickly. Remove from the oven and leave the cake to cool slightly in the tin, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Heat the apricot jam in a small pan, then pass through a sieve to remove any lumps. Turn the cake so the top is facing up and brush with the jam.

Divide the remaining two-thirds of the marzipan into two equal parts. Roll one half out into a circle the same size as the top of the cake, then roll the other half into 11 round balls. Place the marzipan rectangle on top of the cake and with a knife gently score diamonds into the surface, then top with the marzipan balls. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat and place the cake underneath for 1-2 minutes to turn golden.

No-bake chocolate tart

This decadent no-bake chocolate tart tastes as good as it looks, yet couldn't be easier to make

Ingredients
175 g digestive biscuits, finely crushed
150 g unsalted butter
100 ml double cream
200 g Fairtrade smooth dark chocolate, finely chopped
40 g shelled pistachios, chopped

Method
In a large bowl, mix the crushed biscuits with ⅔ of the melted butter. Press into the base and up the sides of a 20cm round, loose-bottomed cake tin.

In a pan over a low heat, gently warm the cream with the remaining butter until just below boiling point. Remove from the heat and add the chocolate, stirring until melted.

Allow the mixture to cool for 5 minutes, then pour into the base. Sprinkle over the pistachios and chill for 1-2 hours until set.

Cook's tip:
mix a handful of chopped fresh mint leaves through some crème fraîche and serve with the tart.

Crush the biscuits and mix with the melted butter. Press into the base of the tin and let set in the fridge.

Meanwhile, gently melt the chocolate and chocolate thins together. Put the sugar, soft cheese, mascarpone and eggs in a mixing bowl and pour in the melted chocolate. Beat well with a spoon. Gently tap the bowl on the work surface to remove air bubbles.

Pour onto the biscuit base and decorate with the clementine slices. Place the tin on a baking sheet and bake for 1 hour, until set. Turn off the oven and leave to cool with the door ajar. Chill until ready to serve.

Hot cross scones

Packed with all the fragrant fruity flavours of a hot cross bun – and chocolate chips, too – these scones are delicious and easy to make, so the kids can help too

Ingredients
225 g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
75 g unsalted English butter, softened, plus extra to serve (optional)
40 g Fairtrade light brown soft sugar
75 g sultanas
25 g milk chocolate chips
0.5 tsp ground mixed spice
1 large free-range egg, beaten
2 tbsp whole milk, plus extra for brushing
25 g plain flour
1 tbsp Fairtrade caster sugar

Method
Preheat the oven to 200°C / fan 180°C / gas 6. Put the flour in a large bowl, add the butter and rub into the flour with your fingertips. Stir in the sugar, sultanas, chocolate chips and mixed spice.

In a jug, beat together the egg and milk. Pour into the flour mixture and bring together to make a soft dough.

Dust a work surface with the extra flour and roll out the dough to about 2cm thick. Using a 5cm cutter, stamp out the scones and put onto a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Re-roll the trimmings and stamp out more rounds to make about 10 scones.

To make the crosses, mix together the plain flour with 1 tablespoon of water and knead to make a smooth dough. Roll out thinly, then cut into strips. Lay the strips on top of the scones to make crosses.

Brush with the extra milk, then bake in the oven for 15 minutes until golden.

Mix together the caster sugar with 1 tablespoon of water and use to glaze the tops of the scones as they come out of the oven. Cool on a wire rack. Split and serve. Spread with a little butter, if you like.

Your children will love mixing the dough for these cute Easter biscuits

Ingredients
200 g unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
200 g Fairtrade caster sugar
1 medium free-range egg, beaten
400 g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
2 tsp Madagascan vanilla extract

To decorate:
180 g icing sugar, sifted
2 tbsp fresh milk
A few drops of pink food colouring
25 mini marshmallows, halved
You will also need:

Bunny-shaped cutters, or use a stencil cut from baking parchment

Method
Using an electric hand mixer, beat the butter and sugar together in a bowl, until pale and fluffy. Add the egg and continue to beat. Sift in the flour, then add the vanilla extract and fold through to form a dough.

Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently until smooth. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Line 2 baking trays with baking parchment.

If you find the frosting is setting before you’ve had time to stick all the decorations on, use a bit of icing sugar mixed with water to fix them in place instead.
