a tasty treat: cinnamon butter...

so as i may have already mentioned i visited bath for the day on Thursday. rather than doing the normal thing and going to Sally Lunn's for breakfast i decided to get a couple of buns to go and have them as a treat over the bank holiday weekend.


one box contains one beautiful bath bun and let me tell you, they are amazing!

in the restaurant they serve them with a variety of thing including: chocolate spread, cinnamon butter and even scrambled eggs!

my personal favourite has to be the cinnamon butter bun, it's sweet, inviting and is served with a slice of orange! beautiful!

as i am having these as a treat at home i decided to make my own cinnamon butter. most recipes i found require you to chill the butter back down after making it but i wanted a quick fix!

you will need:

butter (unsalted)

caster sugar

ground cinnamon

you will notice i haven't put any quantities, this is because it really depends on how much you want to make, how sweet you like it and how much you like cinnamon.

start by placing some soft unsalted butter into a bowl or jug (if like me this was a last minute thing, microwave the butter for 30 seconds)
give the butter a mix and then add a good sprinkling of cinnamon.
next add a sprinkling of caster sugar and then give it a good old mix.
and there you have it! no need to chill it down before using it, but of course if you have left overs pop it in the fridge.
i spread a generous amount on each half of my slightly warmed buns (cheeky!) and to give the butter a chance to melt i took my blow torch to it.

and there you have it! glouriously gooey and incredibly tasty. sadly i couldn't add the slice of orange as i used it all in a pitcher of pimms last night!
