My honey was craving for these buns for ages, so we both asked for the recipe from his mom. This is the second time I’ve made this, and it tasted better because we bought ground cinnamon in a small bottle, which I highly recommend when buying any spice in the supermarket. Although a bit expensive, the flavor will be much more better than when buying it in a small refill box.
2 tbsp. warm water
2 tbsp. golden syrup
125 grams butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 big tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup sultanas
Prep the oven at 180 degrees Celsius (or 350 degrees Fahrenheit). Line the cookie baking sheet with baking paper.
Boil water in a kettle, measure 2 tbsp. and place in a measuring cup with golden syrup. Mix them, then set aside until the mixture becomes warm.
Cream butter and sugar in a mixing bowl, add the egg then beat. You can then add the golden syrup and water mixture.
Sift together flour, baking soda, and cinnamon then mix all together. Add the sultanas then mix again.
Using a 1 tsp measuring spoon, scoop the mixture then put it on the baking sheet using a regular teaspoon. Do not flatten, just leave it as it is.
Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Leave them onto the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them onto the cooling racks.
Makes 24-30 pieces.
