These cheese buns are made with three types of cheese: they are filled with a nice piece of mozzarella and then sprinkled with grated cheddar and parmesan. The great flavor also comes from the fact that the dough for the cheese buns contains both butter, olive oil, salt and garlic powder. In addition, the buns should be brushed with a mixture of melted butter, garlic powder and fresh oregano after baking.
Mmm-m-m, as you see, these buns are flavourful stuff, the taste is amazing! Serve the cheese buns while they are still hot and fresh, with the cheese inside still soft and delicious.
Nothing tastes better than fresh yeast bakery. It does not have to be a special occasion, these buns can be enjoyed fresh any day or you can freeze them and serve them should you get unexpected guests. You get about 20 buns from this recipe.
Rich Bath buns with a sweet sugar glaze were a favourite of Jane Austen – though apparently it was easy to over-do it.
From a recipe from Mrs Raffald’s “The Experienced English Housekeeper” published in 1769. Mrs Raffald tells us to “send them in hot for breakfast”, which sounds rather indigestible for these rich, buttery buns, and may have been why, when Jane was staying with a rather mean aunt, she joked to Cassandra that she would make herself an inexpensive guest by “disordering my stomach with Bath buns”.
Imagine fresh, hot and juicy buns. Now, imagine also that you fill them with a lovely, sweet filling flavoured with pistachios. Lovely, huh? Now your those thoughts can become reality with this recipe for some fantastic delicious pistachio buns. Enjoy – Ted 🙂
Mahamri are a sweetly spiced East African coconut doughnut. There is a great level of confusion concerning what mahamri really are, and whether they are in essence the same as mandazi. In fact, when it all boils down to the technicalities of fried dough, they are essentially the same as mandazi.
The difference is that they have added fragrant spices, or coconut or both of these at times. After all, fried dough is fried dough whether it is spiced, salted or plain. Yet, the nuances are to be respected.
