First of all spread halved buns all over with softened butter right to the edges, and place on a baking tray in the oven at about 180C/350F/gas mark 4. Whilst they are warming up peel, core and slice an apple or a firm pear.
Also peel and segment a tangerine or Satsuma. When the buns are looking crispy and a little bit browned arrange the fruit on top – a few of each type on each bun and then sprinkle with a little sugar or drizzle with honey. Return to the oven for about 15 minutes until turning golden and well heated through. Srve with custard or ice cream.
OR you could give them a meringue topping! Whisk one egg white until stiff and stir in 2tbsp or 50g castor sugar until you have a firm glossy mixture. Spoon this over the fruit and return to the oven for only 5-8 minutes until the meringue is turning brown.
A great week-day treat with very few ingredients!
