  1. Just what I have been looking for. A simple recipe to follow. I can’t wait to try this. I love bread so much and making these and eating them whilst they are still fresh will be amazing. Thank you for this recipe. Will make sure to try and follow every step and I hope they will come out as beautiful as yours. Amazing

  2. Hi and thanks for sharing. These look totally delicious and very tempting. I have just been trying to estimate how frequently I would be able to eat one of these without throwing my low cholesterol diet off track. I guess it is the 3 tablespoons of butter, 100 ml of milk, and 1 large egg, spread out over 12 buns. Probably if I were to have one bun every other day that should be OK. But since the recipe makes a batch of 12 buns I will need both family members to consume their share as well since one batch should be eaten within a couple of days maximum. Thanks again, I am really looking forward to finding out what these taste like. Best regards, Andy
