These are really heavenly. I got this recipe from a friend. It is truly amazing. The bun are almost not a bread. They are creamy, cakelike, and very soft.

How to Make Heavenly Raspberry Buns


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 12-cup muffin tin.

    Combine 1 cup flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Beat cream cheese, butter, and sugar on low speed of an electric mixer until fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Mix in vanilla. Add dry ingredients, alternating with milk. Add remaining 3/4 cup flour and mix until combined.
  2. Spoon batter into muffin cups. Top with 2 small dollops of preserves and swirl into the batter using a small knife.
    Bake for 18-23 minutes, or until a pick inserted into the center comes out clean. It is very important that you do not over-bake these. Makes 18-20 buns.
