Coffee Buns Recipe

Ingredients: Makes 16

225 g/8 oz/1 cup butter or margarine

450 g/1 lb/4 cups wholemeal (wholewheat) flour
20 ml/4 tsp baking powder

5 ml/1 tsp salt
225 g/8 oz/1 cup soft brown sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten

100 g/4 oz currants
5 ml/1 tsp instant coffee powder
15 ml/1 tbsp hot water

75 ml/5 tbsp clear honey

Method:

Rub the butter or margarine into the flour, baking powder and salt until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar. Beat in the eggs to make a soft but not sticky dough, then mix in the currants. Dissolve the coffee powder in the hot water and add to the dough. Shape into 16 flattened balls and place, well apart, on a greased baking (cookie) sheet. Press a finger into the centre of each bun and add a teaspoonful of honey. Bake in a preheated oven at 220C/425F/gas mark 7 for 10 minutes until light and golden brown.
