Rasp Buns

Prep Time30 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Servings: 12 buns
Author: Baking with Granny


  • 250 g Self-raising Flour
  • 55 g Butter or Margarine
  • 55 g Caster Sugar
  • 1 Free-range Egg
  • 2-3 tbsp Milk
  • 4 tsp Raspberry Jam


  • Pre-heat your oven to 190° (or 170°c for a fan assisted oven or Gas Mark 5) and grease a couple of baking sheets. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, sift the flour. Add the butter/margarine 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.
  • Roll a small amount of dough in your hands to make a ball, about the size of a ping-pong ball. Place onto your prepared baking sheets and repeat with the rest of the dough, making 12 balls in total.
  • Using a floured finger, poke a hole into the top of each bun, gently pressing right down.
  • Spoon a small amount of jam into these holes - using a small teaspoon and adding a little water to your jam beforehand will make this step easier.
  • Bake in your pre-heated oven for around 15 minutes until they have a nice golden colour.
  • Allow to cool a little on the baking sheets before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
