As a family, we love baking. Having been brought up by a mum who is a baker, I am used to seeing cakes being baked and decorated and so picked up tips and recipes over the years.
For me, I like to make things that are easier than what my mum makes. I'm not in to big lavish fruit cakes that need months to stand for a better taste, I like recipes that are simple and that I can teach the boys to do so that they too, grow up knowing how to cook and how to bake cakes and treats.
So today I'm sharing my super simple easy peasy golden buns recipe. So easy to make that these buns were produced by Thomas, making them all on his own (bar me taking them out of the oven and supervision whilst using the mixer) And here's how you make them...
You will need:
175g self raising flour
100g golden syrup
Serve plain or make you own topping with icing sugar and water with sprinkles to decorate.
1. Pre-heat oven to 180 C and line a bun tin with 12 cases.
2. Put your sugar and butter into a mixing bowl and cream together until light a fluffy.
3. Slowly add the flour and the eggs a bit at a time, constantly mixing to stop lumps and
then add the golden syrup and fold in to the mixture.
4. Divide the mixture evenly between the bun cases and place in the oven for around 12 to
15 minutes until firm and golden brown on top.
5. Take out and place on a cooling rack until cooled down and then devour.
They're that simple! You could also mix 100g of icing sugar with drops of water to make the right consistency and add the top of the buns with some sprinkles to give them a topping, but this is optional, the buns are delicious on their own.
