Indulgent Triple Chocolate - mix 1 tbs malt powder with a little of the milk to form a smooth paste, then whisk in remaining milk and cream. Fruitless - you can choose to add your preferred dried fruit like chopped apricots or fig or if you don't like dried fruit at all, add some fresh fruit like sliced pear or berries. Mini milk chocolate - tuck ⅓ cup chopped walnuts or almonds in amongst the bun slices. Mini traditional - spread cut buns with butter and a little strawberry jam.
