    Tonyjillshy's Note:

    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

      This was an excellent recipe! It reminded me of my childhood when I would stand side by side with my Jamaican grandmother in our kitchen making Easter buns. She used yeast in her recipe and "set it up" overnight. I've always been a bit intimidated to use yeast so I never tried to make buns the way she did. This was soooo easy and soooo delicious. I've already made two double batches and I'm mailing some to family members on the East coast. The only thing that I would change about this recipe is the next time I won't add the fruit until after mixing the wet with the dry because flour gets in the creases of the fruit and doesn't always "mix out". Great recipe. Thanks so much for posting!!
