The bun's great - an old favorite and this recipe is super easy. Not so keen on the drizzly frosting, a cream cheese icing does it for me.
Very nice!! I halved the recipe and made it mini muffins. They were gone as soon as i took them out of the oven! :) My family enjoyed them with butter and cheese spread. It was much too sweet for us though so will be reducing the sugar quite a bit next time. Thanks for the recipe!
Such a simple, easy recipe and so tasty. I found they didn't rise very much, so joined them together with a bit of apricot jam. Next time I will make it in a loaf pan....and there will be a next time
