More blueberry buns! (a poem)

bluebunsI don’t make these very often, so it always feel like an Occasion.  I got so exited that I took a bunch of pictures, but then I turns out I already blogged here about the process (you can perhaps forgive my memory lapse given that it was almost three years ago!).

Since I have included the pictures already in this post, I will take the liberty of writ out the steps in poetic form instead:


  1. Snatch a round wad of fresh, fresh, fresh, dough / That’s already had sev’ral hours to grow;
  2. Roll it out pancake-flat and round / With two tablespoons of blue-filling crowned;bluebuns (8)
  3. Fold it tight-closed like half of a moon / Fingertips pounce upon’t to form a cocoon.bluebuns (5)
  4. Peel it on up from its bed on the table / pinching as tight as your fingers are able;
  5. bluebuns (6)
  6. Pinch and pinch and pinch some more / Lest blueberry filling sploosh out on the floor;bluebuns (10)
  7. When the pinching time’s fully done / Lie it so gently next to your last bun;
  8. bluebuns (11)
  9. Now if, on the pan, a bun should crack open / Pinch ever more tightly and start in to hopin’
  10. bluebuns (3)
  11. Pinch one more time when all are at ready / Brushing with egg, your painting-hand steady,
  12. bluebuns (2)bluebuns (1)
  13. Sprinkle with sugar a bit oversized / That all of your bun-dreams may be realized.
  14. Now toast them all gently at three-fifty degrees / Half an hour, and beware of “burnt-hue disease.”
  15. Now cool on a rack and keep off grubby paws / For “Filling is Hot” comes with no escape clause.
  16. bluebuns (14)
  17. For ten to fifteen you will be forced to wait / But the reward for patience is sure to elate…
  18. As your teeth sink with joy in the prize that you’ve won / Your very own homemade blueberry bun!
