We’ve Tasted These & They Are Delicious!


So a new school year has begun! And the birthday party invites are starting to arrive. For anyone going to a birthday party or hosting a birthday party at home, here is a simple recipe that can easily be adapted. I decided to make mine chocolate and orange flavour, all the details are below.

Basic Queen Buns

175g Self Raising Flour
125g Caster Sugar
125g Margarine
2 Eggs
2 tbsp Cold Water

  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
  • Put bun cases into a bun tray.
  • Place all the ingredients in a bowl and beat until smooth.
  • Three quarter fill bun cases with the mixture.
  • Place in oven and bake for 15 minutes until golden brown.
  • Cool on a wire tray.


Chocolate Chip & Orange Mixture

For this recipe, I reduced caster sugar measure to 90g ( Because I will be adding chocolate chips!). After I beat the mixture I added 100g chocolate chips and the zest of an orange. When the buns cooled I topped with Nutella & grated on some orange zest! Delicious! I baked them in these small bun cases as they are a great size for parties. These were devoured in the Kilkenny Office yesterday. Who doesn’t like a queen bun and a cup of tea? Mini buns without the guilt!

Tip: If the children are helping out, use an old mayonnaise or ketchup squeezey bottle. Add the butter cream / icing to the bottle and it is easy for them to finish off the toppings.
