      Wow. I'm pregnant and craving finger buns and these are perfect. I also added some sultanas and the icing i added a little margarine to soften it, mixed in and topped with coconut. Ofcourse they had to be cut in half and spread with Margarine. PERFECT!!!! I was suprised but happy to find this recipe on this site.

      I grew up in New Zealand, and had forgotton about these. They are so delicious, especially with raisins and coconut sprinkled on top of the icing. I have lived in Canada for 31 years but still yearn sometimes for the good food from my childhood. Thanks so much for posting this recipe.
