Sticky Date Buns

Sticky Date Buns

Thanks to their natural sweetness, dates make the ideal ingredient for baked treats and desserts, as less sugar needs to be used.

Sticky Date Buns


Makes 12

2 cups self-raising flour

2 tbsp caster sugar

40g butter, chilled, diced

¾ cup milk

1 cup fresh dates, roughly chopped

½ cup pecans, roughly chopped

½ cup brown sugar

½ cup cream

20g butter, extra

1 cup icing sugar, sifted

1 Preheat oven to 200˚C. Grease a baking tray. Place flour into a bowl. Add sugar and stir until combined. Using your fingertips, rub butter into flour until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add milk and stir with a flat-edged 
knife until a soft batter 
forms. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into 
a 24cmx33cm rectangle.

2 Combine dates, pecans and ¼ cup brown sugar in a bowl. Sprinkle mixture over dough. Roll dough, long edge to long edge, enclosing filling. Cut roll into 12 scrolls. Place onto prepared baking tray, side by side. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden and scrolls sound hollow when tapped.

3 Combine remaining brown sugar, cream and butter in a small saucepan. Stir over a low heat until butter is melted and mixture is well combined. Cool. Add icing sugar and stir until a smooth icing forms. Drizzle icing over buns and serve.
