jamie's recipe.
mary's plate...i just remembered i need to return it to you!

a bit of bedtime baking to eat today. i find it best these days to just wait until e is settled to sleep before i set to any recipe following. during the day it is just too tricky keeping one eye on her + the other on the oven. that said i managed to burn one tray of these sweet buns last night whilst trying to catch up on emails simultaneously. will i learn the lesson?

250g unsalted butter
125g caster sugar
125g clear honey {i used eucalyptus}
2tsp finely grated lime zest
juice of 1/2 a lime
few drops of vanilla extract
4 medium eggs
25og s.r. flour

preheat oven to 190c/gas5. beat the butter + sugar until pale and creamy. beat in zest-juice-vanilla. still beating add the eggs slowly one at a time. then add the flour and beat gently to combine. bake in cases for about 15 mins until golden on top.

honey butter icing made with more unsalted butter {3tbsp} whisked up until very pale then gradually adding lime juice {3tsp} zest {2 tsp} and honey {125g} gradually so the mix doesn't split.
