They looked beautiful but we're quite dense and dry. My yeast was good, just not enough liquid. Would be great with jam.

Maybe I took the title of this recipe too literally, but the buns were basically like bread dough as opposed to a batter--I was thinking they'd have more of a pancake batter consistency. However...

I have been making these since I was 10 years old in 4-H (nearly 50 years now). They are blue ribbon buns for sure. Light, fluffy and so easy.

They looked beautiful but we're quite dense and dry. My yeast was good, just not enough liquid. Would be great with jam.

Delicious and I actually ended up making 24 muffins off of this recipe.

I added ground flax seed and the dough is very dry....what can I do?

These are a tasty, soft bun. The batter is thicker than cake batter but way too soft to knead like a bread dough. Easy to make and enjoyable.
