Choco­late date buns

The Guardian - Feast - - Front Page - Ta­mal Ray

I’ve be­come ad­dicted to these buns as a speedy break­fast to have on the go, qui­etly curs­ing the snooze func­tion on my alarm when I’m rush­ing to work. Think of them as pret­zels in spirit rather than ap­pear­ance, as there’s no el­e­gant twirl of dough; it was far too much of a faff to try to get a de­cent amount of stuff­ing in and still have a tra­di­tional shape. But that quin­tes­sen­tial tex­ture is there: a mor­eishly chewy crumb en­cased in a glis­ten­ing crust, bur­nished with a glaze of caramelised sug­ars.
