Baking for Beginners: Brighton Buttons

In keeping with our Sussex theme, I give you Brighton Buttons. They’re little orangey melt-in-the-mouth morsels, sandwiched together with apricot jam. The original recipe said to use a piping bag, but who can bothered with that? Dollops with a teaspoon worked perfectly well for me.

Brighton Buttons (makes 12)

You’ll need:
  • 120g butter, softened
  • 30g icing sugar
  • 120g plain flour
  • Zest of 2 oranges
  • A few tbsp apricot jam
Make them!
  • Preheat the oven to 180c / gas 4.
  • Cream together the butter and icing sugar. 
  • Stir in the flour and zest. Mix well 
  • Put 24 dollops of mixture onto a lined baking tray.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and leave to cool on the tray.
  • Once they’re cold, sandwich the cakes together in pairs with some apricot jam. Sprinkle with icing sugar if you’re feeling fancy.

  1. These look so tasty, and as a native Sussexian (?) I feel it is my duty to bake and devour a batch!
