These buns are just plain awesome. You need to make them today. Personally the name (and the pictures) is all the convincing I need, but in case you need to be persuaded – they are also easy to make, soft but sturdy enough to hold up against whatever you want to pile on them, and nicely flavored. The honey wheat taste makes for a delicious sandwich, and we all know how much better homemade bread is than the tasteless stuff you can buy at the store. The two can’t even be compared!
I made a double batch of these for Andrew’s birthday party and received lots of compliments on them. I was slightly frustrated because the original recipe did not indicate a quantity, and I ended up falling short and having to buy some store-bought buns as well (but I made sure to indicate a yield below). I made a few minor changes to the original recipe including a different shaping method, as well as adding some honey to the butter brushed on the tops of the buns as I do with my favorite dinner rolls. I also sprinkled some sesame seeds on top for looks. I have a feeling I will be making these a LOT!
