Delicious Jam Buns

Hey everyone!

Today I am going to show you how to make these amazing and super easy jam buns. I was going to do cinnamon buns which are more Autumnal but I didn't have any cinnamon. So instead it's jam buns, but we can just pretend the jam is supposed to represent blood for Halloween.

For 8 buns you will need: 
  • 200 grams of self raising flour 
  • 50 grams of margarine
  • 75 grams of caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3 x 15ml of milk (you might not need the whole amount) 
  • Some jam (you can add as much or as little as you like)
  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius/ gas mark 5.
  2. Sieve flour into a large bowl.
  3. Add the margarine into the bowl, cut into smaller pieces and rub into the flour to form breadcrumbs.
  4. Add the caster sugar into the bowl and stir in.
  5. Crack the egg into the bowl and stir until you have a stiff but sticky consistency. You may have to add the milk at this point to get the right consistency.
  6. Lightly flour the surface and roll out the mixture. Cut into 8 even sized pieces.
  7. Roll into balls and place on a baking tray leaving space between them. 
  8. Make a small hole in the centre andfill with jam.
  9. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until well risen and golden brown in colour.
  10. Allow to cool slightly.
  11. Enjoy your delicious creation with a cup of tea (or any other beverage of your choice!) 
So there you have it, some easy but yummy jam buns which are great for Halloween. Let me know if you decide to make these. Speak to you soon!
