Small, curved beauties punctured with soulful, soft, plump fruit. Happily dense and joyfully rustic. With a sweet little coating to finish.
These buns truly are beautiful. They're not like regular fruit loaf or raisin bread. Something about these buns makes them extra special. Perhaps it's the sweet curves...? Or perhaps it's the dried fruit inside, which you can just tell has been placed there with extra love...?
Whatever it is, they've become a real favourite in our house.
These fruit buns, named "beach buns" (cute!) are made by a young couple who have opened up Flinders Sourdough, a lovely little bakery in Flinders (which is one of the most gorgeous corners of the Mornington Peninsula). They sell divine loaves - grainy, rye and more. And their hot cross buns at Easter were supremely scrumptious.
Mum is very keen on these lovely little buns, and so for Mother's Day breakfast last Sunday we popped some in the oven and served them warm.
Would you like some jam?
It's not necessary, but it is rather delightful. Especially wholesome blackberry jam made by ladies from Flinders. It's all about Flinders today.
With freshly squeezed orange juice.
Whenever Ben and I head down to my parent's house in Red Hill we are filled with anticipation for all the delicious local eats we'll get to devour.
And currently, these beautiful buns are all I can think about.
