The gluten-free classic currant buns are super soft and fluffy and just delicious. A currant bun is a European sweet bun that contains currants or raisins.

Serve with some butter or cheese and enjoy!

Gluten-free Classic Currant Buns

  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 15 minutes
  • Total time: 1 hour 25 minutes
  • Serves: 8
  • Calories 180

Allergens/Diets: Gluten-free, Vegetarian


  • 250 g gluten-free flour mix, (e.g. Schär Mix B Bread)
  • 200 g raisins
  • 160 ml milk, lukewarm
  • 45 g butter, melted
  • 40 g caster sugar
  • 7 g yeast, dry
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg


  • 1)

    Soak the raisins in warm water. Make sure they are soft when you start using them.

  • 2)

    Mix the yeast and sugar together, add the lukewarm milk while stirring. Let the yeast-mixture stand for about 5 to 10 minutes until bubbles are formed and the yeast is activated.

  • 3)

    Add the flour, salt, cinnamon and baking powder to a mixing bowl and mix the flour, using a mixer with dough hook or a spatula.

  • 4)

    Add the egg, melted butter and the yeast mixture. Mix everything together for about 5 minutes until you have a sticky dough.

  • 5)

    Drain the raisins and pat dry a little. Add the raisings to the dough and mix the dough for another 5 minutes until the raisins are well incorporated.

  • 6)

    Line a baking tray with baking paper. Wet your hands with cold water and form 8 flat balls of dough. The dough is quite sticky, so it takes some practice.

  • 7)

    Brush the currant buns with milk. Cover with a damp tea towel and let rise for an hour at room temperature.

  • 8)

    Preheat the oven to 200°C conventional heating (top-bottom heat).

  • 9)

    Bake the currant buns in about 15 minutes until golden brown.
