Honey Bun Recipes
A honey bun is a version of the cinnamon bun that is
popular in the southeast United States. According to Mrs.
Freshley's website; "A honey bun is a fried yeast pastry that contains
honey and a swirl of cinnamon in the dough and is glazed with icing.
According to legend, Howard Griffin of Griffin Pie Co. in Greensboro,
North Carolina, developed the first honey bun in 1954. Flowers Foods
acquired Griffin Pie Co. in 1983.
Although the Greensboro bakery is now closed,
honey buns remain a best-seller for Flowers." Unlike cinnamon buns,
which are generally the product of bakeries, honey buns are common
convenience store and vending machine fare. Normally sold
individually wrapped, alone or in boxes of 6 or more, they are a
popular grab-and-go breakfast, eaten cold or heated in a microwave
