Kind of Jubilee Fairy Bun's !

To get me into the Jubilee spirit I have made these quirky little buns, though they are not perfectly pretty, and the Red White & Blue is more Pink White & Sky Blue, they were lushishly delish and I thought I'd share the recipe. But be warned they are super quick to make and lasted less than 24 hour's :-)

Jubilee Almond Fairy Bun's

175g SR Flour
50g Ground Almonds
100g Margarine
Pinch of Salt
100g Sugar
1 Egg
2 tsps. Almond Essence


Icing Sugar
Lemon Juice
Blue Food Colouring
Blackcurrant Cordial


  1. Into a bowl put the flour, ground almonds and salt, rub in the margarine
  2. Stir in the sugar and make a well in the centre of the mix
  3. Add the almond essence into the beaten egg and pour into the well and mix into the dry ingredients
  4. Add small amount of milk as required to get the mixture to a soft dropping consistency
  5. Place mixture into 18 small bun cases
  6. Microwave the buns in batches of 6 at a time for 1.5 to 2 minutes on a power level equal to 650 watts (for my microwave that’s about level 6, but consult your microwaves instruction manual for exact levels)
  7. For the topping mix icing sugar and lemon juice in 3 small bowls or saucers, leave 1 white and add blue food colouring to 1 and blackcurrant cordial to the other 1 and decorate your cooled buns

Voilà & Enjoy!
