Quick, Easy but oh so delicious afterschool snack

On dreary, wet days like today in the middle of Autumn, all I crave is comfort food and this is so quick to do, I started it at 3pm this afternoon and had it ready before I was at the school gates for 3:30pm and no I didn't fly on my broomstick.

All you need is 5 simple ingredients and if you get them tomorrow morning, you too can have it ready before pickup tomorrow.

Nothing says homely, than freshly baked, still warm pastries.


50g of unsalted butter
50g of caster sugar
2 tbsp of Cinnamon
1 block of puff pastry (500g) or ready to use puff pastry (makes the job even quicker)

1 egg(not pictured)



1- Preheat the oven at 200c on Fan

2-Roll out the pastry with some sprinkled flour so it doesn't stick to the surface.

You will need  to keep rolling each end, one at a time, so  that it rolls out into a rectangle. Once its as fine as a 2mm  you are ready to go.

3- Zap the butter in a bowl in the microwave, for 20 secs, if it has not completely dissolved, keep zapping it in the microwave, in 10 secs intervals.

4- Mix the sugar and cinnamon in a clean bowl, use a spoon to really incorporate it.

5- Brush the butter all over the pastry that you just rolled out, Be generous.

6-Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon all over the pastry

7- Roll the pastry from one end to the other to create a long sausage.

8- cut it into 12 equal pieces around 4-5cm long.

9- Using a cupcake tray, butter the tray with any remaining melted butter, and place a cut piece in each hole.

10- Beat the egg and brush it on top of the cinammon bun, finishing by sprinkling any remaining sugar and cinnamon.

11-Stick it in the oven for about 20 minutes and that is it.

I hope you enjoyed this recipe.
