My friend is adamant that you do but I've never heard of it...
Perhaps because I don't like cold butter

Thrilling topic, I know

It certainly used to be an option when I was a kid. I grew up in the almost North.

Well I live in the actual north and I think that's heinous.

MiniAlphaBravo Mon 17-Jul-17 13:35:35

No, horrible. But my husband who is Irish does. Yuck!

No I don't.

North here too! She looked at me as though I had another head when I ate it sans butter 😭

Hoppinggreen Mon 17-Jul-17 13:41:09

I butter most things but that's a step too far for me!!


Isn't it sweetened dough? That would be weird with butter.

But my (irish) dad does butter fairy cakes, Madeira cake etc 🤢

No it has icing, why would you want butter? - that's crazy talk, shun your friend immediately.

justdontevenfuckingstart Mon 17-Jul-17 13:42:51

No! And I bloody love butter.

TheLegendOfBeans Mon 17-Jul-17 13:43:27

God no

TitsalinaBumSquash Mon 17-Jul-17 13:43:42

I'm southern and no, you don't butter a iced bun! Some people just want to watch the world burn .... 😱

Sometimes. Sometimes not.
Depends on who is doing the buttering!

Quite normal in my part of Yorkshire.

magicstar1 Mon 17-Jul-17 13:44:23

Irish here too, and yes to buttering iced buns. Madeira or fruit cake with butter too grin
