French Baguette Buns

Highly recommend this recipe, if you like sour dough, but don’t know how/ don’t want to maintain a starter. It has 0g sugar and oil. But, the flavour is full body and the texture is light and chewy and with a bite, definitely not gummy due to the high temperature of baking. The crust when…

Rilakkuma Pumpkin Buns (with custard and Nutella fillings)

Really cute to look at and nutritious to eat with 100g of pumpkin purée added to the dough. This bun is made for kids! You can leave them plain or wrapped in fillings which I did. The resulting buns are very soft, because of the pumpkin which helps to retain moisture. Surprisingly the difficult part…

Soft Baguette (软式欧包)

I’ve added wholemeal flour, chocolate chip, fruits and seeds to the recipe and it is still very soft. Recipe (Adapted…

Chocolate Banana Sponge
