I have made these yoghurt buns a couple of times, adapting the recipe from SiewHwei’s Kitchen. And it was Yen Li, a FB friend with Culinary Kitchenette (our FB group) that gave me the idea to do “printing” on the buns. It was a hit with my girls! They love the cartoon characters! I have tried with Hello Kitty, Doraemon, Chip & Dale and with wordings such as “Best Wishes” etc. One day, when I am confident enough, I should try painting the pictures directly like what Victoria (from Victoria Bakes) always does! Of course, it will definitely take me eons to be near her standard (^-^) Mine would end up looking like abstract art, I’m sure! Oops! Back to the bread itself, I love this recipe. The buns are soft and fluffy. It helps too that it is an easy recipe but yields yummy bread. My family likes to have the bread with spreads or fillings but for me, as I have mentioned in my earlier post, I can enjoy the bread plain on its own when it is a good piece of bread.
I’m glad that my girls can enjoy these little buns at school and the characters made their buns more cheery-looking. Hmm.. I think I have more cookie cutters in my stash! I should try other prints too! My eldest girl who is in her pre-tween might outgrow the cartoons soon. My second girl is still in this stage and my youngest boy? Err … don’t think I have any Cars, Transformers, Paw Patrol nor RoboCar Poli cutters.
The buns are really soft when baked, so be very careful when removing them from the pan. Hold your excitement! Focus on the removing (^-^)
See the texture of the bread? That’s what always get us bakers grinning. Love the 拉丝-ness! Hahaha… still cannot think of the best English word to describe it (#^^#) The pictures I took that day actually did not do much justice cos I was in a hurry and my boy was literally climbing over me (><)
