Something a little different to serve over the Easter holidays. I used choc chip hot cross buns, and these were delicious. Youghurt is optional, I used whipped light cream.

Most Helpful

I love hot cross buns and was really happy to find a recipe using them. I made these exactly as written, using the option of light whipped cream, instead of yogurt, as a topping. Also, we'd never tasted Nutella before and found it to be a delicious spread both in this recipe and on other breads as well. The roasted strawberries were awesome -- and gave a terrific flavor to the buns. Will definitely make again, although I'll have to use regular buns until I can get hot cross buns again next Easter. Thanks for posting!
