This is an unusual recipe that sounds amazing! Put Golden Raisin Buns with Lemon Frosting on your menu this week! I have a very old cookbook from Rubbermaid Employees that I am using to put up recipes that are unusual, hard to find, or are just different in case any searchers are looking for hard to find recipes they remember from childhood. So far, the recipes are getting lots of views, so I will keep going. This recipe looks great to serve to guests at a brunch or for family during the holidays. Have fun and Happy Cooking!
In a saucepan, combine 1 C water, 1/2 C butter (1 stick), 1 t. sugar, and 1/4 t. salt. Bring to a boil. Add 1 C flour all at once, then over low heat, beat with wooden spoon about one minutes or until mixture leaves sides of pan and forms a smooth thick dough. Remove from heat.
Continue beating dough for about 2 more minutes to cool slightly. Add 4 large eggs ONE AT A TIME, beating after each until mixture has a satiny sheen.
Stir in 1/2 C golden raisins that have been plumped by soaking in hot water for 5 minutes and drained.
Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart on greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes or until doubled in size, golden and firm.
Remove to wire rack to cool slightly. While still warm, gently spread lemon frosting (below) on tops and sides. Makes 20 buns.
LEMON FROSTING: Melt 1 T. butter; stir in 1 1/2 T. heavy cream. Remove from heat. Stir in 1 C powdered sugar until smooth. Stir in 1/2 t. lemon juice and 1/2 t. Pure Vanilla Extract. Add more cream if necessary to make spreading consistency.
