Recipe tips
  • Eat warm from the oven or cool and store in an airtight container for 2–3 days. Warm the buns in the microwave, or split and toast them.
  • To add white crosses to the top, mix 50–60g flour with 2 tbsp water into a paste, roll out and cut into strips. Then, brush with water and stick onto the buns just before they go into the oven.
  • Freezing instructions: Suitable for freezing once cooked. Freeze in individually wrapped portions to use as required. Defrost for 2 hours, or in the microwave.
