Raisin Buns



As always weekend just go so fast. It is funny how one try to do so much things in a weekend, it is like if you don't do all these things in the weekend it will never be done, which I think is not true. But still every weekend it is like that here.

One thing how much I try hard never seems to finish is my Ironing.
I just hate ( well if my daughter says that she hates something, we tell her don't use the word hate, use dislike) well i canot use the word dislike for ironing, i just truly hate the ironing.

Saturday my daughter had a concert and she needed her black shirt which she use only for performance.
I remember after the last concert washing and ironing her shirt and giving it to her. Two hours before the time to leave she looked for her shirt and she coudn't find in her shelf.
And me most of the mothers do ,started grumbling.
She looked in her room no way it had disapeared.
I am still grumbling as I don't want to open up the part of the closet which I try to forget about , that is the place were I dump all my washed clothes saying I have to iron,
In the end I opend up that part and literally clothes fall on to me shouting Iron me Iron me.
I search inbetween then mess, Twice for the missing black shirt, not there.

Then I went to daughters room and looked in her closet , and what do I find in a corner the BLACK Shirt.
So fingers crossed, after writing this post I am gonna Iron at least for 3 hours.

I have made buns with chocolate and now I used the same recipe , but instead of using chocolate i used raisins.
You can find the recipe for the basic bread for sweet breads here and how to make the raisin buns here in the chocolate buns just use the same recipe and use raisins instead of the chocolate pieces. You will see the step by step pic too.


Sending this to Tangerine's Kitchen as she is hosting this Months which is a event started by Zorra, so bake some sweet buns and send it to Rachel.

Imagine me ironing for five adults!! Believe me it's a nightmare everytime I have to iron :)
Your buns sound wonderful. I was thinking of making them yesterday and last minute changed my mind and made something different.

Bong Mom said...

I hate ironing too and I don't. My daughters are still small so no ironing needed for her's. The hubby's I delegate to the laundry.

In my case I do it so bad that no one would even ask me to iron anyway ;-)

Shabs.. said...

hehe....what a nice write up.....I dont hate ironing, but i have the ' starting trouble'.Once i start ironing i can iron for sometime....but to start ironing it takes another sometime...lol....I guess i too hate ironing and iam just doing it cos i have to DO it....

Nice recipe though...

Laavanya said...

I forgot to comment abt the raisin buns.. i have been dreaming of sweet breads for a while now.. I am bookmarking yours to try - hopefully very soon.

Whenever I could not find a particular item of clothing, my mom would always grumble but come by inspite of being super busy in the mornings amidst all the cooking and help me look for it and lo and behold she would find it immediately in the very same place I had been turning upside down searching for it! :) This reminded me of it.
I hate ironing and thankfully I suck at it so my husband knows never to ask me to iron his clothes. Hopefully I won't have to do it for my kids as well :D

Snooky doodle said...

Angie's Recipes said...

The raisin buns are really great for the breakfast together with a pot of hot tea!

Happy Cook said...

Hi Finla

I totally agree, the weekends do go by far too quick. Yesterday was Mother's Day in the UK and it was my day off. Hubby did the ironing and I was so glad cos I hate ironing.

Those Raisin buns look so delish!

I can so relate to that. DD can't find something in her room after searching complaining I go in to search and it is right there. Gets my BP up every time.

jayasree said...

I iron my clothes and my hubby's to the dhobi. I just can't get the folding right for the full sleeves shirt.
And your post reminded me of my cupboard too, overflowing with clothes to be ironed.


Delicious buns...

Divya Kudua said...

I hate ironing too but luckily we have a laundry guy here who does our ironing.Once in a week he comes home and I pile up the washed clothes and he returns a neat bundle..:)

I want to bake buns too..:)

Prathibha said...

wow..lovely buns..I love these kind of fruit buns..:)

Jayashree said...

Ironing tops my list of hated chores. The number of times I've ironed can be counted on my fingers and that's only been 'coz there's been no other option. Luckily for me, we have plenty of iron-wallahs here.

Usha said...

Ironing is mostly definitely a chore I try and avoid as much as possible:-)

The raisin buns look awesome !

Gulmohar said...

Oh yes, I hate ironing too. How I miss our dear dhobi in Hyderabad ;-)

Raisin buns look perfect!

Srimathi said...

It happens a zillion times in our life time when people in our family tell us they cannot find something. Looks like as soon as we become a mother we are provided with a 20/20 vision and can find anything which they could have if they looked without freaking out. I don't blame you when you use the word hate.I tell my daughter the same thing but then we are adults and we know where to use it right. Very nice raisin bread.Thanks for sharing. Nice blogging.

Jagruti said...

nice post...I too hate ironing, luckily I got maid who does it now...Raisin buns looks delicious and yumm...!!

tigerfish said...

My hb also complains to me that ironing is the household chore he hates the most! Hope those raisin buns were therapeutic enough.

Soma said...

I hate ironing and will not do it unless i REALLY need to.

Gorgeous buns.. love raisin and bread together.

Ann said...

Pssst - if you just give the clothes a good shake right out of the dryer when they are still warm, maybe you can get away without IRONING them ;-)
I love fruit buns....

kamala said...

Divya Vikram said...

I dislike ironing too :) My husband does the job :) Buns look so professional with all those raisins in there!

Swapna said...

I have no problem in Ironing but always have a starting trouble ;) But once started I iron for 2-3 hours....

Lovely Raisin Buns!!!

Sophie said...

Raaga said...

These buns look amazing... I discovered a box of Sunmaid raisins... and had to save them from ants... I think I shall make these soon.

I hate ironing! Its easier to go out and buy something than bother ironing it :)
