Top tips.....

Make this vegan by using plant butter, NO egg and using oat milk or a vegan alternative.

Use up any soaked fruit from xmas into these buns for a delicious rich taste.

If you need to add a little more water to form the dough, then do so.

Make these in a muffin tin, remember to grease the tin first, remove and place into muffin cases before adding the lemon glaze.
