Recipe by Tonyjillshy

My husband is from the beautiful island of Jamaica. I made up this recipe for spice buns & he loves them. Excellent served with a slice of processed cheese. On the island they usually serve this during Easter with Tastee Cheese (canned cheese). Enjoy!

Made this Jamaican bun as a surprise for my husband and he loved it, such a great texture and it cost less to make than the traditional buns that use eggs and wine.<br/>I will certainly make this again.<br/>Thanks for a great recipe.<br/>Conyers,GA
