Fruit buns are a type of sweet roll made with fruit, fruit peel, spices and sometimes nuts. They are a tradition in Britain[1] and former British colonies including Jamaica, Australia,[2] Singapore,[3] and India.[4] They are made with fruit and fruit peel and are similar to bath buns, which are sprinkled and cooked with sugar nibs.[5] One variety is a currant bun.[6]
