My last meal before my blog is due 😦
I decided to make a favourite treat in my family…its one of the first sweet things I have ever made and it has been super succesful at tea times with the family 🙂 JAM BUNS!! Such a messy tea time treat, but well worth the cleaning up and flour covered clothes 🙂
225g self-raising flour
100g castor sugar
1 tbsp milk
jam for filling
1) Turn oven onto 200 Degrees Celsius. Grease a large baking tray and sprinkle with flour to avoid buns sticking.
2) Sieve flour into a large bowl, and add cut up chunks of marg into flour bowl. Rub the chunks of marg together with the flour with your fingers (the messy part) until they look like fine bread crumbs. Then stir in the sugar.
3) Break the egg into a seperate bowl, and add the milk. Whisk them together, then stir them into the flour mixture.
4) Sprinkle a large clean surface area with flour. Press the mixture into a large ball, and put onto flour area.
5) Cut the ball in halve, the cut each half into 3 pieces. Then cut each piece in half again. Roll each piece into a ball about the size of a golf ball. (Make sure they are no smaller than that otherwise the jam won’t stay inside).
6) Roll each piece into ball shapes, then flatten onto the baking tray. make a small dent/semi-hole in the middle of each circle, and fill with any desired flavour of jam!
7) Bake the bums for 10-15 minutes, unitl they rise and turn golden brown. Lift onto a wire rack and let them cool before serving 🙂
This is one of my favourite biscuit type of recipes, because it is easy, and also because they are crunchy yet so moist and soft to eat! And also because the jam spreads through the biscuit and makes it gooey!! They are super tasty served warm, and just as good the next day served cold! Delicious to dip into tea/coffee 🙂 But I really need to learn how to be a bit neater when it comes to making food…
