Molasses Buns for those not acquainted with the vernacular of Newfoundland) are one of those treats your grandmother gave you when you went to her house after school.

Be careful when making adjustments, molasses makes baked goods a little more difficult to rise. Too much can also result in a denser harder baked goods too. I like mine at this height but if you want yours to be to be a little higher, squeeze them into a 9×9 pan instead of a 9×13 and bake for about 10 minutes longer.

Continue following the recipe above for the other ingredients, you can also add a cup of raisins of choice to this same recipe if you like to have that too.
