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!
