Breakfast Buns Recipe

My grandmother taught me to bake these breakfast buns 70 years ago. Now my granddaughter makes them! This batter is like a biscuit dough and can be made up in a short time. There's no nicer way to wake up in the morning than to the aromas of biscuits baking and coffee perking!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:16 servings


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup raisins

"I make this recipe and add 1/2 cup choped pecans or black walnut chips for a change of pace. They also store well in storage bags to use as snacks anytime."
