The simple recipe is as follows:
-6oz s.r. flour
-6oz butter softened
-Mix butter and sugar together for few mins.
-add 1 egg at a time with a spoon or 2 of flour after each one (so as not to curdle) Mix well.
-add remaining flour and mix on high speed for a few minutes. Add about 1tsp vanilla extract.
(make sure no butter lumps) Use a spatula to scrap down the sides also and mix again.
-spoon mix into cupcake/bun cases, half way up case. Bake in pre-heated 180 degree oven for about 8-10 minutes.
-i like them nice and light/pale so take them out and check them with a skewer.....if it comes out clean, they're done.
-cool them on a rack.
It's nice sometimes also to decorate them with a topping.
You could add cream cheese frosting. Here i melted some chocolate and topped each bun (when completely cooled) followed by some sprinkles or marshmallows for example and set aside to set.
