Guestpost: Ginger Buns Recipe

Today I have a guest post from my blogging friend, Michaela who blogs at Adventures of a Yorkshire Mum. Michaela is a mum to 2 young boys that love helping her bake and is also pregnant with her third little boy.  

Morning sickness in pregnancy can be horrendous but one of the foods that is supposed to help it subside is ginger. So that got me thinking, maybe I can make a yummy ginger buns recipe that would be tasty but also help when the pangs of morning sickness come in to play.

For my recipe, you will need:

200g self-raising flour
200g butter
200g brown sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
pinch ground cinnamon
15ml water

1. Pre-heat oven to 180c
2. Cream together both the sugar and the butter until it is light and fluffy
3. Adding a bit at a time, mix the rest of the ingredients together into the sugar and butter mix until smooth
4. Put 12 bun cases into a muffin tin and then add the mixture evenly between
5. Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden brown and then take out to cool

And that's it, a basic recipe for ginger buns. I then like to add a little extra flavour with a chocolate sauce for the top. For this you need:

50g good-quality dark chocolate
125ml double cream
25g butter
1 tbsp caster sugar

1. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water until smooth
2. Heat the rest of the ingredients separately until combined together
3. Take both off the heat and mix together
4. Leave to cool a little before topping over the buns

I love this recipe as not only does it have different flavours, but it's simple to make. And the chocolate sauce can be added to the topping of any cakes, buns or even over ice cream for extra flavour.
