Method

1 hour
 


For the croutons: 

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Halve and chop the hot cross buns into small, bite-sized pieces.

Heat the butter in a frying pan until it melts, then continue to cook until it starts to brown.Stir in the bun bits, sugar and salt.

Cook for a few minutes while constantly flipping the pieces over to make sure they are covered in sugar.

Spread on the baking sheet and bake for 20 to 30 mins, stirring a few times during baking, until the hot cross bun bits are well-toasted and a deep, dark brown colour.

Set aside to cool completely and crisp up.

For the Dutch Baby:

Preheat the oven to 220°C.

Place a 24cm cast iron pan on a low rack and heat for 8 mins until very hot.

Whisk the flour, milk, eggs, salt and cinnamon in a mixing bowl (or food processor) until just combined. Do not overmix.

Carefully melt the butter in the hot pan and swirl to coat. 

Pour in the batter and bake until puffed and golden brown for about 20 - 25 mins. Do not open the oven while baking. 

Take the dutch baby out of the oven (the middle will sink in).

Top with smashed Easter eggs, hot cross bun croutons, berries and serve immediately.
