    Looking at the Murray Laver Devonshire Dialect Word Index I have found two references so far to the buns used for Devon team teas.
    1. nubbies = saffron buns or the plain bread-buns eaten with cream and jam
    2. hapuny buns = plain buns eaten with cream and jam

    This certainly accords with my experience as a child coming from Holsworthy – which I guess you could call North Devon. The ‘butter’ was the cream with the jam on top.
