    Baby Kato's Note:

    Serve these feathery light buns with anything fried. These fragrant buns glistening with orange and honey make a lovely side dish or a wonderful treat with a cup of tea. These are best when eaten warm out of the oven or at room temperature.

      Made as directed halving the recipe amount. Easy to put together, we would double the filling next time and probably skip the step of putting the honey in the bottom of the baking dish and just brush or drizzle the cooled glaze over the tops after taking them out of the oven. Although the honey didn't burn, it has a burnt taste to it and since the glaze was on the bottom, it was sticking to the serving plates. Although we could not taste the orange, the flavor of the buns is really good. They are only 2" around after baking and smaller than regular honey buns, but that makes them very cute. :)

      Oh My, these buns are so good. They are light, soft and fluffy. I didn't have almonds so I used coconut flakes. Delish and such a great change from the cinnamon buns. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful recipe.

      OUTSTANDING BUNS! GREAT TASTE! I did make just half a recipe so that I could keep them right here & eat most of them myself (well, my other half did have some of them, too)! The only change I made was to make sure that every teaspoon of orange zest was well-rounded! Thanks for a really great treat & a keeper of a recipe!
