The Talents of a Good Woman!

Jam Buns

I felt that I just had to share with you one of the other talents of Mrs H that is apart from her art which she is well known for.

We have been married for about ten years and this is only the second batch of buns she has made. The first batch was about three weeks ago and they absolutely delicious, in fact I could live off the smell coming from the kitchen - they are that good!

The jam is described as Luxury Strawberry spread at a content of 75% fruit.

They are just perfect with a cup of tea while sitting by the fire on a very cold and wintry evening.

    1. They might do!
      Mrs H say's they bake at a moderately hot oven for 12 to 15 minutes.
      Recipe is 8 ounces of self raising flour
      4 ounces of butter and 4 ounces of caster sugar (& more if you have a sweet tooth)
      Two eggs and your choice of Jam
      Rub butter into flour lifting to add air
      add sugar, in a separate bowl whisk the eggs and add to flour.
      Mix well to make a sticky mixture add a wee drop of milk if necessary.
      Grease flat baking tray or sheet.
      Lift large spoonful of mixture and shape into rounds, leaving room for cakes to spread.
      With a floury finger make indentation in bun and fill with jam.
      Leave to cool before eating - otherwise hot jam burns the tongue says Mr Heron :)
