Resurrection Buns (Sweet Easter Buns)

“These buns form a 'hollow' in the middle after baking. This hollow represents the empty tomb when Christ arose on Easter. They taste very much like cinnamon buns. YUMMY!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix your cinnamon and sugar together in a bowl.
  2. Take a small ball of raw bun dough (these are easily made if you have leftover bread dough as well), and wrap it around a marshmallow, sealing well.
  3. Dip the ball into melted butter.
  4. Dip the buttered ball into the cinnamon/sugar mix.
  5. Place the ball onto a greased cookie pan, (use a pan with a lip, because the marshmallow will melt out to make a nice gooey sauce, and you wouldn't want it all over the bottom of your oven!) Leave enough space between balls to allow them to rise to double their size.
  6. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise for about 35 mins or until doubled in size.
  7. Pre-heat oven to 375.
  8. Bake the Resurrection Buns in the oven for 18-20 mins or until lightly browned.
