Leftover fruit buns

Got these from the Lovefood hate waste people at the food fair. Made them with rhubarb for the outdoor cinema and they were a big hit so currently got a blackberry batch in the oven, yum yum!!


175g butter

175g soft brown sugar (have just had to use granulated white)

125g SR flour

50g ground almonds (or dessicated coconut) important as will soak up the juices

fruit- equivalent of 2 grated apples- could be apple, pear, rhubarb, apricot, plum, gooseberries, nectarines, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries…

2 eggs

zest of 1 orange (could omit- I have today!)


Beat the butter and sugar together

Beat in the egg (today I had to replace 1 egg with yoghurt)

Add the flour and ground almonds and mix

Add the orange zest and fruit (chopped if soft, grated if hard)

Put in muffin cases and bake for 10-15 mins


You could freeze these and reheat for a few mins in oven to freshen up

The recipe is super-easy and makes 12 buns
