My Granny only made this spice bun for Easter Sunday. She was the only one in the family that knew the recipe (featured here a similar variation from source ~ Africanbites.com) so we would all sit in the kitchen as she was making it in hopees of getting a sample before it was done. It’s still one of my fondest childhood memories.
