I got this when I attended a bible school in Rocky Mount, VA. One of my fellow students passed it on to me, after I begged her for it. I have made these numerous times, and they are always great. Beware, if you don't like raisins, you won't like this. It has TONS of raisins in it. Also, I had to guess at how many servings this made, I can't remember.

I substituted plain Greek Yogurt for the sour cream and GF Flour (Better Batter). Also, added 1 tsp vanilla to the custard/raisin filling. They tasted great!

I do like raisins, so I though these were great. I like the cream filling and the sweet and kind of sour thing going on. These were really simple to make and smelled divine while baking. I can't wait to have one for breakfast with coffee. Thanks for posting the recipe.
