Matcha Buns




Whoa...it's been a long time since the last time I baked buns. And the bun baking craze is back again..I can feel it in my bones...the hands are itching to knead and at the same time massage my knuckles :p Well, actually I just wanted to finish up my matcha powder. I have not been making ice cream too for quite a while now, come to think of it , haha too much cream not good for my arteries and heart and my waistline of course.... yea I can be vain at times like this....going downhill is not fun at all :p shhhhh... I meant 25 going 26 * heehee , see how vain I am when it comes to revealing my age ! Sorry for the digress....back to this bun...I took the same recipe from Cheese & Salami Twist just add in the matcha powder....that's it! Garnish with sunflower seeds ....it is crispy on the outside , moist inside and slightly compact though. Daddy likes the texture and I love the matcha fragrance...mmmm so refreshing and yummy :)



bun making is a good therapy for me.....
it is so soul refining hahaha



waiting for it to proof is the best patience testing ever!



wow...the finale...out of the oven..well- shaped buns
and the fragrance is so good...mmmmm
my tongue is smiling!



before eating them I always parade them for my
food pornography photography session :p

slightly compact texture but nice just the same
as long as my tongue is smiling ....it is okay with me



parading them in a row waiting to be executed LOL!

** if you want matcha buns just add 2 tsp of japanese matcha
to the milk mixture.




Enjoy and have fun making them :))

  4. I've been itching to knead too! arg.. kneading breads are so addictive. You've got really soft texture matcha buns there. They look delicious!
