We made some buns for my daugher's birthday so she and her friends could decorate them. I used the sponge cake rule which basically involves weighing the eggs and then measuring equal measures of butter, sugar and flour. That's why there are no measures in the recipe below - it totally depends on what your eggs weigh. If you want to make chocolate buns, replace 30g of the flour with 30g cocoa powder.
Use the same rule for making a sponge cake in 2 (greased and lined) 20cm sandwich cake tins. The icing can be used to sandwich them together.
Watch our How to ice cupcakes video to see how to dress them up or down for any occasion!
