In the sure and certain knowledge that my mood today was not the best, I decided to do something that always perks me up and that is bake.
I saw this recipe on http://www.northsouthfood.com/paris-buns/ and was curious. I hadn’t heard of Paris buns, but Miss South’s recipes are usually very good, I had two eggs just begging to be used, and they have malted milk powder in them which cinched it for me.
I didn’t have any of that pretty sugar in the house, so scattered them with Demerara which seems to have disappeared….
Plus mine spread a bit, so to look at, they are a little less Eiffel Tower and more like mini Millennium Domes….
Still looks aren’t everything, and having just had one with a cuppa, I can confirm that they are very nice indeed. 🙂
Plus I too am so over cakes that are 50% buttercream icing which makes me feel ill, so these bad boys are practically virtuous in comparison.
Which means I can probably have another, right?
That said, the next batch I make might be adorned with a malted milk chocolate topping as I do like to experiment 😉
Thank you Miss South you and your buns have managed to cheer me up! x
