A London bun, also known as a candlegrease bun or a finger bun in Australia, is a finger-shaped or elongated bun made of rich yeast dough flavored with either currants or caraway seeds and topped with white sugar icing.

Formerly a popular tea time bun it is now somewhat neglected. Its nearest still popular equivalent is the Bath bun, however the finger bun variant is a popular lunchtime staple amongst Australian school children.
