Sonya's Mum's Sally Lunn

I made this recipe yesterday - Sonya's legendary Mum's Sally Lunn. It is soooo delicious.
My only complaint us that unlike when you bake biscuits and you can sneak away say one, two, maybe three if they're really good....and nobody really has to know, well, it's not so easy to disguise how much you have gobbled away in that 'testing' phase with the Sally Lunn.
I guess the way through that little conundrum is to secretly make two.

Sonya's Mum's Sally Lunn Recipe

3/4 cup sugar
1 cup cold mash potato (This sounds like a pain, but really, it's just peel a spud, put in pot for 20 mins or so, ignore for another half an hour and then get on with making the Sally Lunn).
2 cups self raising flour
1/4 cup coconut
1/2 cup sultanas
1/4 cup milk (I used a little over 1/2 cup as my mixture was quite dry).

Pre heat oven to 180 deg. celcius. Grease a flat oven tray or lay down baking paper
Cream the sugar and potatoes thoroughly (mind the potatoes don’t go grey and watery).
Stir in the flour, coconut, sultanas and enough milk until you get a smooth firm dough (like scone dough).
Put dough onto tray and shape into 'bun' shape, then bake for 25mins.
Let it cool and ice.


1 tbsp butter (soft)
3/4 cup icing sugar
1/4 cup coconut
Warm water (enough to make a firm mixture)

Mix butter, icing sugar, coconut and slowly add water to make a nice firm mixture.
