Soft raisin Bun

Soft raisin Bun


My son loves soft fresh bun, I have been looking for easy and tasty recipe for soft buns. Today I am sharing my recipe with you. I like to bake them a bit before my son finish school. They are still warm and soft when he comes home serving with a big glass of milk.

You first need to prepare your Proof Yeast in a small bowl:


  • Yeast 1 TBS
  • Sugar ½ tsp
  • Warm water ½ cup
  • Flour ½ cup


  1. In a bowl, put water, sugar and yeast, cover with plastic wrap. Set aside for 15 min
  2. Add flour in step 1 slowly and stir it well all together. Set aside for 30 min

Preparing the Dough


  • Regular Flour 2 ½ cups
  • Wheat Flour ½ cup
  • Dry raisin ¾ cup
  • Sugar  1/3 cup
  • Vegetable Oil or Butter 1 ½ TBS
  • Egg 1
  • Milk 1 cup

Brush on bread

  • Honey 2 TBS + water 1 tsp
  • Egg 1


  1. In a large bowl, mix regular and wheat flour, sugar, oil, egg, dry raisin and the yeast fermentation prepared earlier in small bowl.
  2. Gradually add milk in the large bowl and mix well.
  3. Once your mixture is formed, take it out and start to knead your dough for about 10-15 min. until your dough forms in a nice big ball shape.
  4. Cover the bowl in plastic wrap and wait first fermentation for 2 hours.
  5. Once 2 hours reached, take your dough out and form in long dough. Cut into 12 equal pieces.
  6. Place 12 pieces into your baking pan. I like square shape baking pans. Cover with plastic wrap. Wait second fermentation for 1 hour.
  7. Preheat oven at 350F.
  8. whisk an egg and brush it on dough before putting in oven for baking
  9. Bake for 15-19 min depending on your oven.
  10. Prepare honey and water mix.
  11. Brush honey water on bun right the way when bun come out of oven.
