This vintage classic was my Never-baked-it-before challenge today. I had an Auntie who made amazing iced buns when I was little. They were just the right consistency of fluffy bun with a thick layer of sticky icing on top. I used this this recipe from BBC Good Food (http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1269636/easy-iced-buns ) and I think it’s pretty good.
These were a little smaller than I’d imagined and a bit heavy too. I’m putting that down to the prove. It’s quite cold today and I don’t think they rose enough. The flavour was good though and they didn’t take much effort so I will definitely have another go…
The plates were a £2 charity shop find on Friday! Aren’t they pastelly delicious?
It is with a raft of icing stuck to the roof of my mouth I say:
It’s only vintage but I like it!
