Recipe by Sherrie-pie
This is a recipe someone on the British site was looking for. I found it on Delia Smith's messageboard. I haven't tried it. And I've no idea how long it takes to make.

Not sure why these are called Belgian Buns. I was born and raised in Belgium. Never seen these in my life until I moved to the US...these look much more like Koffiekoeken, sweet bread/pastry items of various ingredients...very Flemish.
