This slow cooker bread pudding with hot cross buns proved a real hit on the Maison Cupcake Facebook page. A whopping 22 of you shared it!
It’s so easy there’s barely a recipe but for completeness for my archives I am recording the recipe on the blog today.
I am also submitting it as my first entry as new co-host to Bake of the Week. Helen at Casa Costello has been merrily hosting Bake of the Week for ages but she’s taking a half step back to run it on a fortnightly basis with myself as she reboots her Aardvark Cakes baking business.
So thank you to Helen for letting me co-host this long running linky with her and I hope we can find lots of new regular folks who will add Bake of the Week to their linky regulars!
If you’ve not come across Bake of the Week before, let me sell it to you on the basis that there will always be a full round up AND lots of shares to social media rather than taking a gamble whether you get featured!
