Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits

I feel like I haven’t posted a new recipe in a while so I thought I should share these yummy treats that we had over the weekend. I make a double batch as they seem to disappear as quickly as they come out of the oven.

My kids loved helping with these. They can measure and stir as well as practice kneading their own little batch of dough and then cut out their own little biscuits too.

Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits



  • 3 c. self rising flour
  • 2 t. baking soda
  • 1 T. cinnamon
  • 1 c. butter or shortening
  • 1 1/2 c. raisins
  • 1 1/2 – 2 c. buttermilk or you can use regular milk with 1/2 c. sour cream

Rice Pudding

This has been a favorite of mine since I was little. It is a great way to use up leftover white rice also. Some of my kids don’t like the raisins so I usually divide the batch in half and leave one part plain.

This could also be served for breakfast, if you liked.

Rice Pudding


  • 1-2 c. cooked white rice
  • 1 box vanilla pudding, prepared
  • 1/2 c. milk, more or less to get it the consistency that you want it
  • 1/2 c. raisins, plumped or let the pudding sit 5-10 minutes before serving
  • 1-2 T. cinnamon, to taste
  • 1/4-1/2 c. sugar, to taste


Combine 1st three ingredients adding milk to get desired thickness. (I like mine a little thick.) Add cinnamon and sugar to taste. Stir in the raisins.

Cinnamon muffins

My kids love muffins, especially cinnamon muffins. These are super easy to whip up and the cinnamon sugar topping makes them extra special. These are good served for breakfast or as snacks.

Cinnamon muffins

2/3 cup butter or margarine

2/3 cup sugar

2 eggs

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1 cup milk


1 cup sugar

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted

Preheat oven to 350. Grease Muffin Pan. Cream together the margarine and sugar. Add eggs and beat well. Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and then add to creamed mixture or alternating with the milk and mix well. Fill your greased muffin cups half-full.  Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

For the topping:

Mix together sugar and cinnamon. Dip the muffins in melted butter and then in the cinnamon sugar. Serve warm.

An alternative method is that you can actually spoon a tablespoon or so of the cinnamon/sugar mixture onto each unbaked muffin and swirl it with a butter knife before baking.
