Coconut Buns

Buns are small, sometimes sweet, bread or bread roll. Though they come in many shapes and sizes, they are most commonly hand-sized or smaller, with a round top and flat bottom.


8oz flour
2 level tsp baking powder
2 oz margarine
2 oz sugar
½ tsp grated lemon rind
1 oz dried fruit
2 eggs, beaten

Sieve flour and baking powder together. Rub in fat.
Add sugar, lemon rind, and fruit.
Mix to a stiff consistency with beaten eggs and a little milk.
Place in heaps on a greased baking tray and bake in a hot oven, 450 degrees Fahrenheit, for about 25 minutes.

Grated coconut, peel or jam may be used instead of dried fruit. When using jam, put a teaspoon into the center of bun and cover over with dough. Buns may also be rolled in crushed cornflakes before baking.
