Am really hooked on bread baking and quite some time did not share any new project using yeast. I have found baking your own bread so easy and addictive. The smell alone was enough to make me salivate.
Although I like buying Red Bun Flower Bun from bakeries, I love baking them even more. So decided to make them at home. They tasted better than bakeries and turned out warm. and super fresh.
These Red Bean Flower Bun are so appetizing that you will eat at least a couple of them in one sitting. The soft and fluffy bun tastes so delicious, it can be eaten as it is. It is so rewarding to sit down, sip a cup of coffee and devour them freshly baked.
You can shape these into a round ball instead if you find shaping them to look like a flower a bit tedious. Anyway what shape you make, they still taste awesome.
