Buns are so versatile, easy to make and easier still to eat with a nice cup of tea.  You can, of course, make this mixture into a loaf cake if you would rather.  For approximately 30 buns you will need:

  • 8 oz butter (softened)
  • 8 oz Caster sugar
  • 4 medium sized eggs (beaten)
  • 8 oz Self Raising Flour and
  • 2-4 oz dessicated coconut (depending on your own taste)​

This is the usual creaming method so cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy then add the eggs one at a time with a spoonful of flour with each egg.  Fold in the flour and coconut using a figure of eight motion.  Put a spoonful of mixture into paper buns cases which are inside a bun tray and bake for 15-20 mins until firm to the touch.

​Cool the buns on a wire rack then when cool make some icing with icing sugar and water and spread on the top of each bun, sprinkle with coconut and leave to set.  Enjoy!​
