Buns, buns, buns

Besides the common round buns, these are some of the other shapes that the Asian sweet bread buns take form

The caterpillar buns

For instructions on how to shape these buns, head over to Happy Home Baking


and the sakura buns. I don’t have a reference on how to shape the sakura buns. But it is pretty easy. You just filling in the dough as per usual, flatten it a bit and using a knife make 5 mini slits around the circumferece bread at regular intervals before you leave it to proof.

Both of the fillings for these buns are made with store bought red bean paste, while the recipe for the dough is the same dough i used for my rotiboy.

The recipe that never fails to produce the softest, and moistest breads.

    Okay, your awesomeness, I will try the rotiboy recipe soon. I promise. You’ve sold me, a thousand times over. I can’t do red bean paste. Chocolate, however, is a whole other story.

    They look gorgeous. I love these kind of buns but they are so hard to find where I live. Will have to try making my own.
