Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 12 Buns


  • Mixing Bowl
  • Hand Whisk
  • Small 12 Hole Bun Tin or 2 cup Muffin Tin (not Jumbo)
  • Small Bun Cases


  • 100 g Vegan Butter or Margarine, cold
  • 100 g Caster Sugar
  • 65 g Natural Yogurt (½ cup)
  • 100 g Self-Raising Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 100 g Chocolate Chips or sultanas


  • Preheat Oven to 190c.
    Pop your bun cases in your bun tin.
  • Place all the ingredients, excluding the chocolate chips, in a large mixing bowl and whisk until just blended, using an electric hand-whisk, or wooden spoon if you're feeling strong
  • Using a dessertspoon, spoon the mixture evenly between the 12 bun cases. It is better to half fill them first, and then top them up afterwards using whatever batter is left.
  • Bake for between 15-20 minutes or until golden brown on top.
  • Remove from oven, leave to cool for about 5 minutes before placing on a cooling rack. These are great straight from the oven, but actually taste better the next day!
