I love bread. When it is this bread! (Pass the butter, yep, all of it!!)

And I can’t go past a great bun, I mean who doesn’t love good buns?

This recipe is a version of a recipe that appears in the Pimp My Pantry calendar that is out and about already and you may have already tasted it’s wonders.

I thought the bracelets in this method were worth showing you on the Insiders as I think they are brilliant for the OCD amongst included!! Anyway, this recipe will no doubt appear in other projects in the near future. It is just too good not to share again. I hope you give it a go and if you are reading this as a non Insider, go and get that done!! STAT.
