6 Bakers Delight Choc Chip Hot Cross Buns, halved
1 lt vanilla ice cream
Vegetable oil for frying
Whipped cream, for garnish
Fresh cherries, for garnish


    1. Step 1

      Line a tray with baking paper and set aside. Using an ice cream scoop, set 6 scoops of ice cream onto the tray and place in the freezer for 1 hour

    2. Step 2

      In the meantime, place 1 Hot Cross Bun halve between two pieces of glad wrap. Using a rolling pin, roll out to half a centimetre thick. Remove 1 side of the wrap and set aside. Repeat this step with all Hot Cross Bun halves

    3. Step 3

      Working quickly, remove the ice cream from the freezer and place a ball onto the base half of a Hot Cross Bun. Place the top of the hot cross bun onto the ice cream, leaving the glad wrap in place. Cup between hands to make a ball. Twist the sides of the wrap and place back in freezer. Repeat with all Hot Cross Buns and leave in freezer for 2 hours

    4. Step 4

      Fill a small saucepan halfway with vegetable oil and place over a medium heat. Bring the oil to 190°C, checking regularly with a candy thermometer. Remove wrap from around each ice cream ball, one at a time gently lower into oil with a slotted spoon and cook for 15 seconds

    5. Step 5

      Using the slotted spoon, remove each ice cream ball from the oil and place on kitchen paper. Repeat with remaining Hot Cross Buns

    6. Step 6

      Place on serving plates, garnish with cream and cherries. Serve immediately
