These three-bite buns are really just cupcakes with a cute name. Recipe from Nigella Lawson’s Feast: Food that Celebrates Life (Alfred A. Knopf Canada).
Nigella’s ‘marshmallow’ topping is delicious, but potentially tricky. You’ll need a double boiler (or a heatproof bowl and saucepan that will create one) plus a hand-held electric mixer. Still, it’s not a foolproof method and sometimes depends on the humidity in your kitchen. If you’re feeling uneasy about it, top the love buns with your favourite store-bought icing or swirls of vanilla-scented whipped cream.
