What's not to love when it comes to warm hot cross buns fresh from the oven? But if you find yourself with slightly less-than-fresh hot cross buns, turn them into this bread-and-butter pudding, layered with orange marmalade and baked until golden brown. This recipe is quick and easy to prepare, and great as a sweet treat for the Easter weekend.
