Aldi is selling a hot cross bun bread and butter pudding for Easter

ALDI has mashed together two iconic sweet treats to create a hot cross bun bread and butter pudding for Easter.

The food hybrid has been inspired by the classic bread pudding but it’s made using layers of sweetly spiced buns.

In between the layers is a Madagascan vanilla custard.

The Easter-themed dessert, which is part of the supermarket's Specially Selected range, is available in all Aldi stores from April 4.

It'll cost £1.99 for a 600g portion.

As it’s a seasonal product, the pudding won’t be around for long and is likely to disappear from shelves after Easter, which falls on Sunday, April 12 this year.

Sadly, you can't order it from the Aldi website so you'll need to find it in store.

Aldi has around 830 shops in the UK – use the online store finder to locate your nearest one.

We've asked the supermarket how many calories the pudding contains and we'll update this article when we know more.

Traditionally, bread and butter pudding is made by layering slices of buttered bread scattered with raisins in an oven dish.

We couldn't find another supermarket selling a hot cross bun bread and butter pudding when we check online today.

In more sweet news, Aldi is now selling a bottle of rose that tastes of fruit salad sweets.

Aldi has just relaxed limits placed on some items due to coronavirus – but essentials including bread and bleach are still being rationed.

The supermarket is also now closing its UK stores early to help restock – here are the latest Aldi opening hours.
