Scottish black bun - baked for "first footing" -an old Hogmanay custom: shortly after midnight, neighbours would visit one another to offer their best wishes for the New Year and take gifts such as black bun (a fruit cake wrapped in pastry) to symbolise that the household would not go hungry that year. http://www.deliciousmagazine.co.uk/recipes/scottish-black-bun/

Black Bun: This traditional Scottish recipe was given to us by Linda Farquhar, the mother of Morag, our former art editor. Linda lives in Aberdeenshire so you can be sure it's totally authentic.
