Chef Noel Easter Bun Recipe

1 Mins read

Easter is just around the corner, which means the spiced variety of bun (and cheese) will be flying off the shelves in no time. Here’s Chef Noel favourite go-to bun recipe, lightly spiced with a blend of nutmeg, cinnamon and mixed spice with a note of stout, and studded with fruits.

Liquid Ingredients

2 tbsp melted margarine
1 cup Guinness stout
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp browning
1 medium egg (beaten)
1 tsp Molasses (optional)

Dried Ingredients

1 1/2 cups dark sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon powder
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp mixed spice


2 oz glace mix (mixed peel)
2 oz raisins, soaked in water
6 glace cherries to top bun


Preheat oven to 150ºC/300ºF. Grease a loaf pan with baking spray or margarine; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs until foamy, add vanilla, molasses (if use) browning, stout, melted butter and sugar, mix until the granules dissolve.

Then, in a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients with fruits (leave some for the top), slowly add liquid to dry ingredients and stir thoroughly to combine. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan half-way leaving room for bun to rise (top with cherries, if desired). Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Glaze and leave to cool before slicing. When cool, serve with slices of cheese.


Combine 2 tablespoons honey with 1 tablespoon melted butter and bring to a boil. Use a pastry brush to apply over the surface of the bun.
