    Cookgirl's Note:

    Adapted from several online recipes: namely 'Flavors of Belize' cookbook and Vegan friendly. For the record: I used half unbleached cane sugar and half demerara. If at all possible, please use *freshly* grated nutmeg. My Belizean friend described these buns "like English scones."

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 cups unbleached flour
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 1/3 cup brown sugar (regular brown sugar, raw, demerara, muscovado, turbinado)
    • 1/3 cup unbleached cane sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
    • 2 tablespoons butter (I used a combination of butter and coconut oil but original recipe specified shortening) or 2 tablespoons coconut oil (I used a combination of butter and coconut oil but original recipe specified shortening)
    • 1/2 cup coconut milk (can use regular milk)
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1/4 cup raisins (we subbed dried cranberries because someone in our household does not like raisins)


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      In a large mixing bowl sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.
    3. 3
      Stir in both sugars and nutmeg.
    4. 4
      Cut in the butter/shortening and/or coconut oil.
    5. 5
      Combine the coconut milk and vanilla and stir in the bowl with the flour *just* until moistened. DO NOT overmix the batter! Stir in the raisins.
    6. 6
      Roll into equal size balls and [slightly] flatten.
    7. 7
      Arrange on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake about 20 minutes or until golden brown. We liked our powda bons with a drizzle of agave.

      Very good and easy - we used a mixed berry mix from Trader Joe's and didn't use the healthier options but used regular sugar, butter and regular skim milk. Made for ZWT9. Thanks for sharing!

      These were a yummy treat! In flavor they reminded me remarkably of a donut, probably due to the nutmeg. I reduced the sugar a bit, to about a half cup, but did sprinkle some raw sugar on top. The kids thought they were a bit too crunchy, but I liked the texture. Made for ZWT 9, Gourmet Goddesses.
