Scottish Black Bun

   Rather misleadingly called a bun, this is a traditional Scottish cake, consisting of dried mixed, flavoured with almonds and spices. The whole is ‘topped and tailedÂ’ with shortcrust pastry, to resemble a sandwich.

They are eaten in Scotland at hogmanay, but are thought to have originally been more associated with twelfth night.

If making one at home, they are best made a few weeks ahead, then kept in an air-tight tin.

If you enjoy cooking take a minute to look at ‘Simon Scrutton French Cookery Classes’ on Google – and learn how to make top class bistro-style dishes. Suitable for beginners upwards. Small classes.
