I love making tea buns. I always have help with Dad around because he really likes to use the mixer. I keep the tea bun recipe the same except for the berry, the raisin or the chocolate chips. I’m constantly trying to stick things into these tea buns that will taste good. So far, vegetables are a no go.
3 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
1 cup raspberries
1 cup milk
Mix your flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and butter together. You don’t need to over mix. Just add one ingredient, mix for a couple seconds and add the next one. When you get to the raspberries you need to be gentle. Just a quick pulse and it is fine. Next, add your milk. You only need a couple pulses as well.
Sprinkle a little flour over your work area. Remove your mixture and lay it out on the table. Most of it should be in a ball form. Sprinkle another bit of flour on the top and work together all the bits that scattered about.
I always cut it into 3 or 4 workable pieces. This works well for me and especially works well with the mixture with berries into it.
You can roll it out with a rolling pin however a little pat with your hand will usually put it into shape. You can use a glass or a round cutter to make your round shape. I bake them for about 15 minutes or so on 325.
Serve with tea or coffee… Dip if the mood strikes ya
