For the last two weeks I into the mood of baking breads, tarts, muffins and pies. Some of you may know that I'm a baker at home baking cakes only from taking order through friends, relatives and from my cake blog. Although my ovens (3units) are in used everyday baking cakes, in between I do have some space to bake others 'stuffs' but the mood is not there.
The past two weeks I've baked some buns, tarts, muffin and a few cakes that is not included in my cakes menu for order.
The recipe for this buns is very simple, taste good, soft even the next day. I got the recipe from YUM YUM edition 62, 2009. Here I made four flavours for the buns (36 buns) with 3 recipes for the dough. The buns disappear fast after giving away some to my neighbours. My younger son's love bread.
