Gluten-Free Vegan Boston Bun

Gluten-Free Vegan Boston Bun

The idea behind this recipe came from a lovely reader who sent me an email suggesting making a Boston bun. I have to admit this is a dish I have never heard of before, but she was kind enough to explain it to me. A Boston bun is a large spiced bun usually containing mashed potato and raisins, served with a thick layer of coconut icing. It is most prevalent in Australia and New Zealand. Now I do not know about you, but this sounded incredibly interesting to me. I love trying out different foods that maybe initially sounds a bit odd (i.e Black Bean Brownies) and was therefore very excited to make this.
