Nothing is more satisfying than a hot cuppa freshly brewed with hot from oven, freshly baked coffee buns to take my mind off, allow me to enjoy a little break.
The full-bodied aromatic flavour metamorphosed & filled the house while the buns were in the oven baking. The fragrance is strong enough to uplift spirit & excite one senses. If you are a coffee-holic like myself, you certainly loves these buns.
These buns smell like freshly-brewed coffee.
The amazing yeast working hard proofing the dough.
Really fun piping these swirl!
My children can gobble 4-5 pieces at one go! I used to buy these buns but not anymore eversince i knew how to made them. My family is my inspiration to learn new bakes everytime. I usually bake in large quantity on top of their craving & also to give it away to friends & neighbors who enjoy coffee.
Crispy outer crust, soft & fluffy inner sweet buns. We prefer it plain without butter or custard fillings.
I received couple of requests for the recipe for my Mocha Coffee Buns.
Here it is... Enjoy!
