A Boston bun is a large spiced bun with a thick layer of coconut icing, prevalent in Australia and New Zealand. Traditionally the bun contained sieved potato, and modern versions sometimes contain raisins. It is often served sliced and buttered, to accompany a cup of tea. The origin of the name is unknown.
In New Zealand they're often called a Sally Lunn, especially in the North Island.
