If you see the recipe for this my Easy Easter Breakfast Buns you will kick yourself and say: “Now, why did I not think of that?” Maybe you have and if so, drop me a line, I am eager to try new things. With Easter around the corner, long weekends ahead and all my children at home, I love spoiling them for breakfast. There is something to be said for coffee brewing and something sweet baking in the oven. what a way to wake up?
I have to admit that my children are not too keen on eating dried fruit. They love the fruit rolls and fruit sticks , but dried peaches, pears and raisins are not on their Top 10 list, but if  I sneak raisins into their muesli, muffins and favorite sticky buns, they cannot resist. In my house dried fruit find its way into chutneys, relishes, stews and even the odd chicken pie, but for those delicious recipes you will have to wait.

  It all starts with a ball of dough…
With Easter weekend in mind, I decided to share this easy recipe with you, two recipes actually, but the same ingredients… the secret here is the shortcut of buying your dough rather than making it from scratch. So the ingredients are exactly the same for both recipes, just treated in a different way, but you will get the just of it as we go along.

Easy Easter Breakfast Buns/Roll
makes 16 small buns or 1 round roll enough for 6-8 people


1 kg ready made bread dough – buy from your local bakery
250 ml brown sugar
125ml butter
5 ml fine cinnamon
250 ml chopped Safari pecan nuts
1 cup Safari Sultanas
1 egg

Place sugar and butter in a small saucepan and melt together. When melted, add the sultanas and nuts as well as the cinnamon.


For the Easy Easter Breakfast Buns

Preheat oven to 180 C.Divide the dough into 16 balls/buns. Spray a oven proof dish ( rectangular Pyrex) with Spray n Cook and pour the butter and sugar mixture into the bottom of the dish. Place the 16 buns on top of the sauce, leaving gaps in between for the dough to rise. Preheat oven to 180 C. Allow to rise for about ½ hour and then bake in a moderate oven for 30-40 minutes.

 Golden brown and delicious – tip out on a plate

 For the Easy Easter Breakfast Roll


On a floured surface, roll out the dough in a large rectangle to about 1 cm thick. Use a pastry brush or spoon and spread the butter and sugar mixture over the dough. Roll up from the long side. Once you have a long roll, brush it with egg white(to hold it together) and roll it up into a coil. At the end, just tuck the point of dough underneath the roll. Brush with egg wash and allow to rise. Preheat oven to 180 C and bake for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown and when tapped with a finger, it must sound hollow.

 Roll into a coil
 Bake to perfection and wow your quests at the table.

 Serve with lashings of butter or drizzle with lemon glaze.

    Heerlik die rolletjies. Ek het dit ook al gemaak. Ek het net room ipv botter gebruik en dit bo-oor gegooi.
    Ek het ook 'n sout weergawe probeer. Room gemeng met marmite oor die rolletjies.

    […] or raisins. I learnt quickly that most kids do not like raisins or sultanas. If you do like breakfast buns with fruit, try these. If sweet treats or not a treat to you, try these savory Chinese Steamed Buns. […]
