Put in a bowl together ½ lb. of flour, ¼ lb. of sugar, and 3oz. butter, then rub lightly together till smooth.
Add 3oz. of desiccated cocoanut and a large half teaspoonful of baking powder, and mix well.
Beat 1 egg till very light, add it gradually with sufficient milk to make all to a stiff paste.
Butter a flat baking tin and put a spoonful of the mixture on it, not too close together.
Bake in a quick oven for ten or fifteen minutes.
A little cocoanut should be sprinkled over each bun before they are put in the oven.
