Heather, I don't have a scale thanks for posting this in 'cup' measurements, sometimes the conversion can be questionable on Zaar! The recipe is easy to follow, very well written directions. I used 3/4 cup of sugar and (by mistake, I was distracted!!! LOL) 4 tablespoons of butter, it didn't seem to affect the finished bonnag. I did not have any dried berries, so used a mix of currants, raisins and dried mixed fruit. I did not have any of the spices listed so I added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon each ground cloves and nutmeg. After I brushed the bun with milk, I sprinkled some coarse demerara sugar. Bake time was an hour in my oven at 350 degrees. Great tasting, not too sweet bonnag, DH likes to butter his slices! Yummy!! Prepared for the Virtual Tour of Britain and Isles.

It was great! I used Cranberries, Blueberries, Raspberries and Cherries. The only thing I did differently was I switched the 1 cup of sugar with 3/4 cups sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar.
