something about doing a ‘mini’ version of a cake which is fun, especially when baking
with children. There’s more scope for them to get mixing and creative
decorating. Whether you call them 'buns' or 'small cakes', these mini versions of
Easter cakes call for attention. This is Grandma Abson’s foolproof recipe for ‘buns’
which are always a winner.
2 tsps vanilla
175g self raising flour
2 tsps baking powder
A little milk
For Chocolate cakes: 1 tbsp cocoa powder
Cream the butter and sugar and add the vanilla extract and beaten egg. Sift the flour and baking powder and add to the creamed mixture using a little milk if necessary. For half of mixture add cocoa powder to make chocolate buns. Half fill bun cases and bake in a moderate oven for 15 minutes. (350 F, Mark 4, 180 C). Allow to cool.
Scoop out the top of each bun and fill the hole with butter cream or decorate with glace icing. Add mini eggs to decorate.
Have a very Happy Easter and check out more of
