I have Paris Buns every week thick with the big bits of sugar on top and I then slice it open and stuff a load of Golden Cow Butter inside.  My wee Heaven in Belfast.
 
Just love them and of course Donkey's Lugs.

I trained for a marathon and my carbhydrate intake each day was a Fly's Graveyard ...amongst others but I think that it gave me the edge. ;)
I'm patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it ...

Paris Buns-have not seen one for years-we always got them from `The Breadserver`who called 3 times a week!!
 
I am sure they are still available in Home Bakeries somewhere in N.I. today.
