Altered ingredient amounts. I used an extra 3 tbsp of milk (8 tbsp total) for the buttercream icing and I used 100g of currants instead of the nuts for inside the buns as my son is only young. - 07 Oct 2010
These were great, really moist. They kept well for a few days. Wasn't so sure on first taste but 2nd taste was great. Icing really made them yum!! My little girl loved them too - a sneaky way to get veg in! - 06 Mar 2011
They were very easy to make and incredibly moist. I don't know what I did though as I used the given measurements but somehow managed to make 36 cakes! I would definitely make again although may use less of the ingredients next time! - 17 Apr 2009
