About this deal

Mix together the bi-carb, citric acid and icing sugar - feel free to taste and adjust if you want it sweeter, more sour or more foamy. Bake buns for about 20-25 minutes - they should be a nice golden brown on top and slightly springy to the touch.

The children got a real surprise when they bit their currants, and Moon-Face almost fell off the branch with laughing. There are a few versions and recipes online already, but I’ve kinda gone my own way with it, of course the general outline of how this was done can really be done with any particular bun recipe that you want. Here are a few instances that feature in this particular book: Saucepan's nose grows as long as Pinocchio's.

Dame Slap, who runs a school for bad pixies which, in some of the adventures, the friends accidentally land in.

When the children first meet Silky, she is described as an elf: ″At that moment the yellow door opened and a small elf looked out. This tree grows so high that it reaches special clouds that contain magical lands which visit every now and again and rest on the top-most branches. Cover with a clean tea towel and let it sit for about an hour in a warm spot - it should double in size.

Making the glaze is super simple - combine all ingredients in a stand mixer and whisk till combined, alternatively you can whisk by hand, just be sure to get all lumps out. While the original description of Google Buns are that they contain a large currant filled with sherbet, it was really hard to find any currants bigger than sultanas around my local area, so I cheated and used dried apricots.

The tree is so tall that its topmost branches reach into the clouds and it is wide enough to contain small houses carved into its trunk. Over the years, the Faraway Tree stories have been illustrated by various artists including Dorothy M. Connie, a spoilt and stuck-up girl, comes to stay for the summer with the three children while her mother is sick. The Magic Faraway Tree: A Christmas Adventure by Jacqueline Wilson published in October 2023, continues the story of Milo, Mia and Birdy from Wilson's earlier book. The stories take place in an enchanted wood in which a gigantic magical tree grows – the eponymous 'Faraway Tree'.

Now the scene is set for the children to do what the Faraway Tree books are all about — visiting one land after another and experiencing adventures.

Such exciting adventures are experienced that the children deliberately stay away from the tree every now and again just to get over them but eventually they're off again for more thrills. Soon they were all sitting on the broad branches outside Moon-Face’s house, eating Pop Biscuits and Google Buns. Jo, Bessie and Fanny's mother is very understanding of the children's relationship with their friends in the wood and is quite happy to let Jo stay the night with Moon-Face although she expects him back the next day because he has his share of the chores — as they all do.Watzisname 'pummelling them as if he were beating carpets' and the Saucepan Man throwing his saucepans at them. So when you got to the currant and bit it the sherbet frothed out and filled your mouth with fine bubbles that tasted delicious. He experiences much the same as the children did when they first climbed up and he gets the same treatment as Bessie from the first book did when she peeped in at one of the windows set in the tree-trunk. Near the end of the book Silky, Moon-Face and Saucepan are nowhere to be found and the children are informed of this by another inhabitant of the Faraway Tree — Mr Watzisname who visits them and even stays the night at their home.
