There’s nothing like a hot cross bun toasted and slathered with butter. The rich flavour and soft texture of California Prunes married with a zing of candied orange is a wonderful combination. We’ve adapted TV chef Peter Sidwell’s recipe slightly, adding a touch of sugar and butter. For a healthier, lighter version, leave both out – the recipe will still work as the prunes give sweetness.
A bit about Peter: He’s a TV chef, baker and author of five cookbooks, as well as being the founder of Simply Good Food TV and brand ambassador for California Prunes. He’s presented TV shows including ITV’s Britain’s Best Bakery and Channel 4’s Lakes on a Plate.
