Black bun is a type of fruit cake completely covered with pastry. It is Scottish in origin and was originally eaten on the Twelfth Night, but now it is enjoyed at Hogmanay, that is at the end of the year.

The cake mixture typically contains raisins, currants, almonds, citrus peel, allspice, ginger, cinnamon and pepper, but it can vary depending on the region.

Black bun is cooked several weeks before it is served, so that it can mature. The cake remains good for about 6 weeks after it is prepared. It is baked usually in loaf pans.
