about making a dozen buns as a surprise? Simple and quick to make -
these were original baked around the Suffolk Coast long ago - an area
which, even today, is still remarkably remote. (Visit our Free E-card page or our Legends pages to see pictures
of the area).
12 oz Flour
4 oz Ground rice
4 oz Butter
3 oz Sugar
2 teaspoons Baking powder
Large pinch of caraway seeds
1. Heat the oven to 400'F (gas mark 6).
2. In a cool earthenware or glass bowl mix the
ground rice and baking powder until well mixed together.
Using your fingers, rub in the butter and keep rubbing until all the
mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs. The mixture must be fine or the
buns will not turn out well.
4. Once you are happy that the
mixture is fine enough then, still using your fingers, stir in the
sugar and the caraway seeds until well mixed.
5. Stir in the
eggs (using a wooden spoon) and start to gently stir in the milk until
the mixture becomes a smooth firm paste.
6. Lightly cover
your working surface with flour and turn out the mixture. Roll out
until the mixture is about 1" thick. Using a 2" diameter pastry cutter
cut out as many rounds as possible - hopefully you should be able to
make at least 12.
7. Grease a baking tray and place the
rounds onto it. (Or line a shallow tray with a baking sheet). Bake for
15 to 20 minutes or until golden.
