Cherry Granola Breakfast Buns

I love bread for breakfast . . . muffins, tea breads, pancakes, waffles and tasty little gems like this recipe here today.

Delicious Cherry Granola Breakfast Buns.

A drop type of scone, all short and buttery . . . each crumbly buttery mound filled with delicious cherry preserves and topped with some crunchy granola. Baked until golden brown and then glazed with a delicious vanilla icing drizzle.

 Oh so good! Sweet and savoury at the same time, with some crunch and meltingly buttery goodness.

 What's not to like??

Oh, and did I remember to tell you that they are quick as a wink to make, easy and you can have them on the table in about 20 minutes???

 Well . . . You can! Go on . . . what you waiting for??? Your family will thank you for them!

Buttery drop scones, filled with cherry preserves and granola crumbles, and then glazed with a delicious vanilla drizzle. Yummo!

280g plain flour (2 cups)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 TBS caster sugar
3/4 tsp salt
8 TBS butter, melted
225ml of cold buttermilk (1 cup)
cherry fruit preserves
1 crisp granola bar crumbled (I used Nature's Valley honey and oat)
to glaze:
2 heaped dessertspoons of icing sugar

Preheat the oven to 220*C/425*F/ gas mark 6. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Set aside.

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, soda, salt and sugar. Stir together the melted butter and cold buttermilk. Stir this into the flour mixture. You should have a somewhat sticky dough of dropping consistency. Drop this mixture by heaped tablespoonful's onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space inbetween for spreading. You should get 12 mounds.

Using the back of a wet teaspoon, make a shallow hollow in the centre of each. Drop a scant teaspoon of cherry preserves into each hollow. Sprinkle some of the crumbled granola bar over each.

Bake for about 15 minutes, until browned on the bottoms and golden on the tops. Remove from the oven. Allow them to cool for a few minutes.

Whisk together the icing sugar along with a few drops of milk and vanilla, to make a drizzable consistency glaze. Drizzle over top of the breakfast buns. Serve while still warm. Store any leftovers in an airtight container. Reheat briefly in the microwave before serving. (Not too long as you don't want the jam to get too hot, about 15 to 20 seconds should do the trick.)


These are the perfect thing to bake for your sweetheart (s) this month, don't you think?  Bon Appetit!

  1. I like this kind of brekkie too yet eat my yogurt every morning..

    thse look fab..I have no cherry jam..I will remedy that..and I guess plain granola could work?
    Thank you!

    1. You could use plain granola if you wanted to Monique. I would not use one with fruit in it. I think you will love these and I think any kind of jam would work! You have some lovely homemade strawberry jam there that you made! xo
