2 tbsp of melted butter

1 egg

3 cups sifted flour

3 tbsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

2 tsp mixed peel and cherries

2 tsp nutmeg

2 tsp anise

1 cup of raisins


Dissolve sugar, honey, melted butter and egg in stout. Beat well.

Combine all dry ingredients.

Add stout mixture to flour and mix well.

Add fruits last, then pour in baking pan.

Oven-heat 350F for 1 to 1 1/2-hour bake time.

After bun is baked glaze with honey while it's still hot.

I've been baking... for over 30 years.

My Easter bun was baked... over 20 years ago. I got an order from Sangster International Airport to deliver 30 buns and I remember delivering them the morning and they were still hot.

I bake because... I love it! I just love seeing the end product and the look on my customers' faces when they see their Easter bun. Last-minute orders can be a challenge

My Easter bun is special because of... Me! But I can't tell you my secret.

My must-have ingredient is... Anchor butter.
