Honey Tea Buns


Similar to a scone rather than a bread bun these are best served on the day they are made.

Prep Time: 35 mins


3 cups Edmonds standard flour; 4 tsp Edmonds baking powder; 1/2 tsp salt; 1 tsp ground ginger; 75g butter; 1 egg, beaten; 2 Tbsp liquid honey; 1 tsp grated orange rind; 1 to 11/4 cups milk; extra milk to glaze; sugar; cinnamon


1. Preheat the oven to 200ÂșC. Grease or line a baking tray.

2. Sift flour, baking powder, salt and ginger into a bowl. Cut butter through until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
