Jamaican Easter Bun is a delightful piece of the Jamaican culture traditionally made in the “Easter season” as the name dictates. It is a sweet, delicious tradition that has been passed along from generation to generation.
Melt margarine and allow to cool, then add stout, wine, vanilla, browning, guava jam and beaten egg (if used).
Stir in the sugar and mix until all the granules are dissolved.
Mix together all the dry ingredients then add the chopped mixed peel and raisins.
Combine liquid mixture with dry ingredients and mix well.
Scrape the batter into a greased loaf pan 12"x4"x3".
Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C/350°F or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
Cool on a cooling rack.
To Glaze: Combine 2 tablespoons honey with two tablespoons water and bring to a boil; remove from flame and use a pastry brush to apply it over the surface of the bun.
Pairs great with a slice of cheddar cheese.
