Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 25 minutes
Total: 45 minutes



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup milk, warmed
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup dried currants
  • For the spiced honey butter glaze:
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, and yeast.

  2. Add the warmed milk and melted butter to the dry ingredients. Mix until a dough forms.

  3. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5 minutes, or until smooth and elastic.

  4. Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover with a clean kitchen towel. Let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until doubled in size.

  5. Punch down the dough and knead in the cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins, and dried currants.

  6. Shape the dough into a ring and place it on a greased baking sheet.

  7. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let it rise for another 30 minutes.

  8. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).

  9. Bake the bun ring for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.

  10. While the bun ring is baking, prepare the spiced honey butter glaze. In a small bowl, mix together softened butter, honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

  11. Remove the bun ring from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. Brush the spiced honey butter glaze over the top of the bun ring.

  12. Slice and serve warm. Enjoy!
