I could've completely forgone the Easter basket as a kid if someone just gave me a handful of Cadbury Creme Eggs (the best!) and a store-bought bakery container of some fresh, hot cross buns. I've never liked Peeps, chocolate bunnies are overrated, and all that faux grass in the Easter basket itself was just annoying. I was a weird kid.
I'm not sure if it's the candied fruit, the thick, piped-on icing or the sweet, buttery bun itself, but no Easter is complete without a hot cross bun. Inevitably we always ended up with some leftovers after the Easter Bunny hopped on by. Enter French toast.
Slicing the buns in half and making French toast with the bottoms is one of my favorite ways to enjoy this holiday treat before they go stale. Of course, you can make French toast with the tops too, but I love keeping them intact to enjoy all that delicious icing one last time.
