Coffee Buns

Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Servings: 12 buns


  • 85 g Caster Sugar
  • 115 g Butter (at room temperature)
  • 1-2 tbsp Treacle
  • 1 Egg
  • 225 g Self-raising Flour
  • 60 g Sultanas


  • Pre-heat your oven to 190°c (170°c for fan-assisted ovens or Gas Mark 5) and grease a couple of baking sheets with a little butter.
  • In a large bowl, cream the sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
  • Add the egg and mix until combined. Add the treacle and mix through.
  • Sift in the flour and add the sultanas. Mix until you have a soft sticky dough.
  • Take 1-2 tbsp of the dough and roll into a ball, before placing onto your pre-greased baking sheets. Repeat with the rest of the dough, leaving spray between each bun.
  • Gently flatten each bun a little before baking in your pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes.
  • Allow to cool on the baking sheets a little before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
