Method

Mix together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla essence in a bowl.

Slice the hot cross bun and dip each slice into egg mix and place onto lightly buttered nonstick pan on moderate heat, cooking each slices on both sides for 3 mins.

Slightly melt 70g of chocolate and spread across each slice, then sandwich together (using the spatula) and cook for a further 2-3 mins (or until the chocolate seeps out the sides).

Take off heat and place on serving plate.

Melt the last 50g of chocolate, serve with a scoop of Matcha Ice cream, dust with cinnamon and icing sugar, then pour melted chocolate.
