I absolutely love to bake when I get the chance which unfortunately isn’t very often. I usually have to get a whole free day and an empty house to even think about beginning to bake, as the kitchen usually ends up looking more so like a construction site than a baking heaven.
The amount of baking book ranging from cupcakes, to cookies, to treats, to cake to cake decorating is growing stupidly big and I am running out of room in my tiny bookcase to store them!
But back to the point in hand, I actually got a chance to bake last week for my manager’s birthday! She requested one thing in particular.
My famous Malteaser buns.
This is probably one of my favourite things to bake and it’s quick and easy to do. It is also probably one of the only recipes I know completely off by heart however I’m still working on the size proportion of them, as they change every time I make them, from thick to thin, to small to large.
I have shared my recipe a couple of times with friends, and it is easy enough to find one online as well but I thought I would officially put it up here on my blog in case any of you’s wanted to bake some.

Poundland usually sells decorative bags for sweets or buns which I always pick up as they have a a nice design on them and there is 12 bags in a pack including bows to tie them. This just makes for nice presentation if I am ever giving them to a friend for a present or have been asked to wrap them up for someone. You can also buy these bags online! There are tons of different designs and are great for keeping the buns/treats fresh and it also makes sure they don’t get broken.
