    Dreamgoddess's Note:

    From Southern Living 1981 comes this recipe for sweet rum-flavored buns laced with raisins and cinnamon and topped with a sugary glaze. This yields 2 dozen buns and they freeze beautifully, but the recipe is easily halved.

      Excellent Buns!!! At first I thought that it was difficult to make, but "I should give it a try"! Althought the dough didn't rise at first and I thought that I have made a disaster, the result were some Excellents buns. They rise later in the oven and what a smell while baking!!! I halfed the recipe and had 10 big buns and 2 smaller. After I made the dough I noticed that I didn't have any raisins and I made it without. Next time I'll adde some raisins and walnuts. It was the first time making buns but it wasn't the last. Thanks so much Dreamgoddess! Made it for ZWT3.

      Oh My! Have just wolfed down one of these delectable morsals and they are yummy! I used about 1/5th wholemeal bread flour, extra milk and missed out the rum flavouring as I didn't have any-I was too scared to add actual rum. Instead I increased the cinnamon and added vanilla to the icing. My skill at baking does not run to the wonderful bun pictured but I managed to create ugly little treasures. Thanks for this one Dreamgoddess.To be repeated.

      How did I miss reviewing these?? I made them several weeks ago for a photo swap and they turned out beautifully. They are best warm but they were still good the next day. The rum flavoring could easily be replaced with a different flavoring if you prefer but it did add a neat flavor to them. Thanks for such a fun recipe dreamgoddess. Sorry about the late review!
