Hot Cross Bun Ice-cream
TOTAL TIME: 2 - 3 HOURS
SERVES: 4 - 6
1 L vanilla ice-cream
2 - 3 hot cross buns, at least one day old
1 tbsp brown sugar
50 g melted butter
Remove ice-cream from the freezer and allow to soften slightly while you prepare the other ingredients.
Preheat oven to 180ºC.
Tear the hot cross bun roughly into small pieces and place in a food processor with sugar and butter. Blitz until you have the consistency of fine bread crumbs. Line an oven tray with baking paper and spread the mixture evenly over the tray. Place in the oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until the crumbs are gently browned and crispy.
Next place the ice-cream in a large mixing bowl, together with most of the crumb mixture (keep some aside for sprinkling over the ice-cream when serving). Stir the crumbs into the ice-cream and then place in the freezer to firm-up.
Serve in individual bowls spinkled with remaining crumb mixture.
