Author: Baking with Granny


  • 250 g Self-raising Flour
  • 60 g Butter
  • 55 g Caster Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 115 ml Milk
  • 50 g Mixed Dried Fruit
  • Pearl Sugar Nibs


  • Pre-heat your oven to 190° (or 170°c for a fan assisted oven) and grease a couple of baking trays with a little butter.
  • In a large bowl, sift the flour. Add the butter and rub together with your fingers until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add the sugar and egg to the mixture. Add the milk a spoonful at a time, mixing together to create a thick, sticky dough - you may not need all the milk.
  • Add the mixed dried fruit and mix until evenly dispersed through the dough.
  • Using wet hands, form your dough into 12 even sized balls, placing each onto your pre-greased trays with a bit of space between.
  • Sprinkle a small amount of your sugar nibs on top of each bun.
  • Bake in your pre-heated oven for around 15-20 minutes until they have have flattened out slightly and have a nice golden colour.
  • Allow to cool a little on their trays before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
