The cook.....

This is what I had to eat after my solid walk this morning!!! I have to say that it was THE BEST BOSTON BUN I have EVER tasted.....and I mean ever!! I had that and a glass of milk for lunch, some fruit for afternoon tea and just some soup at tea time tonight. I AM hoping that this means I will still shed the kg's that I want to loose..but geez it was worth every small bite I savoured.
I have to say that this is not the actual bun, neither is that her kitchen..indeed..with my daughter's slave labor the kitchen will surely be set for being declared a state of disaster. LOL.
In their defence I must say that my girls did a splendid job of mixing up a cake batter tonight, and then spooning it into the patty cake pans..then eating the remainder of the mix too (always the best part!!)
Cheers Cazzie!!!

Someone please explain to me what a Boston Bun compares to. Is it like a cinnamon roll? Is it like coffee cake? What are those dark spots, raisins?

I have been to Boston, but did not have the bun. I had some tasty bagels, though. And some clam chowder. But what is in this bun of which you speak so highly?

Hi Cazzie,
No need to suck up, I will make you a full one next time, just keep Ange away from it.

OK, here is the recipy, it is really easy to make, so even the worst of cooks should be able to do this one.
What you need:
2 cups of Self Raising flour
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of cold mashed potatos
1 cup of milk
1 cup of mixed dried fruit
Cinnamon to taste (about 2-3 teaspoons).

Mix the ingredients together in that order, then place into a greased cake tin. Pre heat your oven to 180C, then cook for about an hour and a half. Use the good old method of the wooden skewer to test if it is ready.

When it is cooked, let it cool down, the ice it with mock cream (Icing sugar, butter and a few drops of water mixed together until creamy). Then finally sprinkle with coconut.

That is all there is to it.

Wow, Bec! You need a cooking show! You aren't just telling me that recipe as a prank, are you? Cause I'm not so sure about the mashed potatoes.

I love boston buns ;)

Hi Comic Mummy, I am hungry now too!
Mrs Diamond, now you got the recipe you can bake your own, have fun :)
Hillbilly Mom, not sure why theyre called Boston Bun, suspect they originated there...but they could now be recalled Rebecca's buns!!
Rebecca, I will have no problems taking a bun off your hands..what so ever!
Rebecca, thanks for the ingredients, will be sure to endeavour to make one myself one day..but then again, it won't taste the same as yours..surely.
Hillbilly Mom, it is no gag assured, the cake weights a tonne..and I only got one slice of it!
Patrick, we should all have a Boston Bun Dinner one day with Rebecca as the chef of all chefs. :)

Hi Hillbilly Mom,
The mashed potato is no joke. Instead of using eggs in the mix, you use the potato for the starch to hold it all together.
