I couldn’t believe I had such a satisfying weekend. A weekend filled with bun making, kimchi making and trying out new dishes which turned out to be a delight for the family. A memorable day indeed , trying out this chocolate swirl bun. This recipe was taken from a Japanese website. Who would believed that this Momsie is such a daring person, one who doesn’t read Japanese yet dared to use a translating software to translate the ingredients into English and using her amateurish skill to make this delightful bun ! A real treat for the Piggies…the bun turned out fantastically soft and the chocolate swirls , though it doesn’t look nice but it added flavor to the bun. Two thumbs for this delicious bun.
