These buns are light and wonderful. In just over 2 hrs from start to finish. This recipe is from the Canadian Mennonite Cookbook.
Top Review by Kingshearte
I had intended to make different buns, but found myself without eggs, so I found this, and they're quite lovely. In fact, I seem to be having the same problem as the other reviewer who couldn't stop eating them... And they went quite well with the soup I served them with.
