Sultana Buns

    3 hours 30 minutes

    These are a lovely little bread roll that have sultanas in them. I like to make them with my kids, they are amazed at how it rises then they get a non-sugary treat to eat.

    Lovely teatime buns - nice toasted with butter and jam. I used 1 sachet of 'easybake' yeast (7g) which is added to the dry mixture and it worked perfectly. I glazed the buns by brushing the tops with agave nectar while still hot. Very quick and easy.  -  09 Aug 2014  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)

    Really nice and easy activity that I did with my 7 year old. The prep time is incorrect though if you consider slso the 90 minutes to add for leavening. (Total 110 min prep time)  -  17 Feb 2017  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
