A fruit (or speckled) bun, adopted by the Christian church for Easter as a celebration of the death and re-birth of Jesus (hence the Cross)
This recipe comes from an article of around the early fifties. It’s a good recipe, but the photographs are limited in quality to say the least!
Many will say that a far better, far cheaper and far less time-consuming product can be bought from Asda or Tesco or Sainsbury’s for mere pennies!
And that may well be true, but a plateful of freshly baked buns placed upon a kitchen table will soon disappear as if by magic!
Try it! You may surprise yourself!
Unfortunately picture nine is to far gone to reproduce but the buns are essentially finished. A simple sugar glaze, brushed on while still warm, will produce a glorious finish.
In defence of the home-made:
Last Autumn I went to see ‘The Fiddler on the Roof’ performed by a group of high-school students. ‘Not an unusual thing’, I hear you say, ‘it happens all the time’
Well yes, so it should. But to hear a 16-17 year old Rheptavia sing ‘Tradition’ brings home the true meaning of the word. Education is not a one way thing. Old must teach young, that is a given, but the young should also be permitted to enlighten their elders when necessary!
