Not quite a scone, not quite a cake, Paris Buns are a sweet, bread-like cake. Best eaten fresh from the oven with a big mug of tea! —RetroBakes

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 375F/190C.
  2. Sieve the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl.
  3. Next, cut the butter into small cubes and rub into the flour mixture until it resembles breadcrumbs. Then stir in the sugar.
  4. Beat the egg, milk and vanilla together in a small bowl, then add to the rest of the mix and combine until you have a stiff dough.
  5. Divide the dough into six equal sized pieces and shape, with floured hands, into flat rounds about 3in/7.5cm across.
  6. Place on a lined baking sheet and brush with beaten egg or milk. Sprinkle with coarse sugar. They will spread a little during baking, so don't put them too close together.
  7. Bake at 375F/190C for 15-20 minutes, until golden.
