A recipe for molasses sticky buns is a cinnamon roll recipe that uses both molasses and raisins as ingredients. While Taste of Home's molasses-pecan sticky buns do not explicitly list raisins as an ingredient, they can certainly be added.
Make molasses buns by combining 1/2 cup of butter, 1 cup of molasses and 1 cup of white sugar in a bowl. Pour in 1 cup of boiling water, and mix. Stir in 1 teaspoon of ground cloves, 2 teaspoons of allspice and 4 teaspoons of baking soda. Mix in 5 1/2 cups of flour and 1 cup of raisins. Chill for 20 minutes before rolling out the dough and forming it into circles. Bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 20 minutes.
Another option is to add raisins to an already-existing cinnamon roll recipe. First, make the dough by mixing together two packages of quick-rise yeast, 3 tablespoons of sugar, 1 teaspoon of salt and 2 cups of flour. Meanwhile, heat 1 cup of 2 percent milk, 1/2 cup of water and 1/4 cup of butter in a saucepan, and add to the flour mixture. Knead the dough on a floured surface for a few minutes, then allow it to rest covered for 10 minutes. Roll the dough out, and cover it with 1/4 cup of softened butter, 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon and raisins if desired.
Roll up the dough, and cut into 12 slices. In a baking dish, combine 1/2 cup of cubed butter, 1 cup of packed brown sugar, 1/2 cup of molasses and 2/3 cup of chopped pecans. Place the rolls on top of the mixture, and bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 to 30 minutes.
